Langley police investigate counterfeit cash, perfume theft, and a glasses frame heist

Tips are wanted for a number of crimes and one case of recovered valuables.

• A man allegedly stole a bike that had been locked to a bike rack on Douglas Crescent on June 26.

• A woman in a black baseball cap and pink shirt allegedly used a stolen credit card to make several purchases at a Langley Chevron gas station on July 18. She was seen leaving in what appeared to be a black four-door Mazda.

• On July 27, a pouch was turned over to the Langley RCMP containing money from Sierra Leone. Police are looking for the rightful owner and hope to return the cash.

• A woman allegedly stole glasses frames from a Langley LensCrafters store on Aug. 5th. The frames are worth more than $2,000.
