Two well-known prolific offenders have been taken off the streets after a Burnaby RCMP investigation.

Its Prolific Offender Suppression Team (POST) investigated after police were alerted to a spike in apartment break-and-enter incidents in late December, including cases involving multiple storage lockers, say Burnaby RCMP.

Officers worked with the detachment's crime analyst to identify trends and possible suspects.

A well-known prolific offender was identified and arrested without incident on Jan. 7, ending the area crime spree.

Search warrants were later executed at a Burnaby home where police found stolen property including passports, driver licenses, social insurance cards, Carecards, department store credit cards, pieces of mail and computer equipment.

Police are processing the hundreds of pieces of evidence with the goal of reuniting them with their rightful owners.

Burnaby resident Paul Roderick Lindsell, 32, has been charged with two counts of break and enter and one count of identity theft. Barbara Ann Lawrence, 47, also of  Burnaby has been charged with one count each of identity theft and breach of probation.
