Langley bandit swipes safe

A smash-and-grab thief stole a safe and more than $4,000 from a Walnut Grove business, Langley RCMP say.

Surveillance video of the crime scene revealed that on March 3, just after 3:30 a.m., the thief pulled up in a vehicle.

He smashed his way through the front door and began looking through the cupboards and cash register in the front of the store, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The thief then headed into the back of the store, where he found the safe. He loaded it onto a buggy and headed out the back door of the building.

The suspect was wearing a black toque, a black jacket, blue jeans, and gloves during the robbery, Marks said.

Police are asking people to look at the photo of the suspect, and call in a tip if they recognize the man. The Langley RCMP can be reached at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
