Bobcats and candy on criminal wishlist in Langley

Three Bobcat excavators have been stolen in this community since Oct. 11.

The thefts have occurred all over the Langleys including Willoughby, Langley City and Aldergrove.

Two were stolen from construction sites, while the third was taken from the back of a pickup truck.

“Criminals are more industrious than you might suspect and you should take extraordinary steps to secure your property or it may roll away,” Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy said.

The RCMP recommend people use locks and chains to secure equipment and even go to the extent of removing batteries for an extra measure of security. (Files 2017-37999, 41488, 42517)
