Crooks take car components in Langley auto yard

Rather than stealing a car, some thieves made off with $7,000 worth of car parts from a Langley garage over a March weekend.

Sometime between March 15 and early on March 18, someone broke into the garage  in the 5700 block of Production Way.

A mechanic was storing vehicles there that were being worked on, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The thieves seem to have broken a lock on an access door. They then broke into the three vehicles and swiped parts, wheels, and gasoline from the shop.

The three cars are a white Lincoln Town Car, a purple Chevrolet pickup, and a red Oldsmobile Cutlass.

The Mounties are also investigating a pair of relatively petty thefts from two liquor stores.

On Jan. 30, just after 1:30 p.m., someone stole about $150 worth of booze from Jimmy Mac’s Beer and Wine Store in Walnut Grove. The suspect, a Caucasian man in his 40s wearing a long-sleeved buttoned shirt, fled west on 96th Avenue in a red 1980s Chrysler LeBaron with a temporary operating permit.

On March 29 at 1:30 p.m., the RCMP were called to the Willoughby Liquor Store in the 6400 block of 201 Street after $75 worth of alcohol was swiped.

Anyone who can help solve any of these crimes can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
