Five eateries hit in North Langley

The Langley RCMP is investigating five robberies at North Langley fast food joints between December and Jan. 20.

Cpl. Holly Marks said police believe the cases bear “ome commonalities leading them to believe they may be connected.” They occured at Taco Del Mar, KFC, Quiznos, and two Subways.

“On each occasion, a lone Caucasian male enters the establishment and produces an edged weapon. He demands the cash from the register and flees on foot.  Police believe he may, occasionally, have a female accomplice assisting by holding the door as he exits. On at least one occasion, he was seen departing in a dark coloured SUV or truck,” Marks noted.

The male is Caucasian, about 28, with some facial stubble and blond hair. He’s 5’11” and thin. The male being sought by police often wears dark clothes or grey sweats.

“At each of the robberies he has usually masked his face in some way,” she added.

Thankfully no one has been injured and the only threat of violence has been the production of the weapon.
