An Abbotsford man has been sentenced to a 20-month jail term for committing a home break-in with his brother in the summer of 2011.

Appearing in Surrey provincial court on Monday (Oct. 1), Dane Dorozan, 36, was also handed two years’ probation.

He and his brother Darwin, 38, were arrested in August 2011 by the Surrey RCMP following a home break-in in South Surrey.

Dane was sentenced on one count of break and enter. Darwin was originally charged with 21 counts of break and enter, one count of possession of stolen property, and one count of assault with a weapon.

He pleaded guilty to 12 of those offences in May of this year and received an eight-year jail term.

During Darwin’s sentencing hearing, it was revealed that he had committed the robberies to feed a $600-a-day heroin habit.

He was caught because he left behind knapsacks containing robbery tools and identifying materials, including a methadone prescription in his name, as well as lists of names, addresses and phone numbers of his robbery victims.

RCMP checks of his cellphone records indicated he had called his victims’ residences – most of them in South Surrey – on the dates of the robberies to find out whether they were home.

On Aug. 15, 2011, a police surveillance team watched Dane and Darwin remove electronics from a home in the 16400 block of 28 Avenue, and arrested them.

In January of this year, Dane was sentenced to 18 months’ probation and a $1,000 fine in Abbotsford provincial court for an unrelated drug possession charge.
