Crooks swipe Coke memorabilia from Langley home

Langley RCMP are looking for public tips on a number of recent crimes, including the theft of some vintage Coca-Cola signs.

On Oct. 25, police were called to a home on Hitchingpost Crescent after an antique wheeled cooler and large round sign, both Coke branded, were stolen overnight, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

Each item was worth about $1,000, Marks said.

Police are also looking for suspects in some recent shoplifting and break-in incidents.

On Oct. 16, someone broke into the underground parking lot in the 21000 block of 56th Avenue. The thief or thieves attempted to unsuccessfully steal a car, and took a GPS from that vehicle, as well as some tools from a storage container. The thieves may have tried to break into other cars, too, said Marks.

Surveillance images showed a Caucasian woman wearing a white hoodie and pigtails.

On Oct. 19, someone broke into the Business Center in the 5700 block of 203rd Street by breaking off a door handle and kicking in some interior doors.

The thieves apparently stole some license plates and a Ford F250 pickup. The truck and plates have since been recovered.

Anyone with information can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) to remain anonymous.
