"Quite frankly, I think the community, the citizens of Surrey, are sick and tired of this behaviour," Carr said.

"We're taking this very, very seriously and we're going to get to the bottom of it, and hopefully we can get some charges out of this."

Neighbours told Global News that the home is listed on Airbnb as a full house for rent, and showed the listing as featured on the short-term rental site.

Carr said he's talked to those neighbours and that police will be investigating how the group gained entry.

Anyone with information helpful to the investigation is asked to contact Surrey RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
