Langley thieves made out with more than the bear necessities when they broke into JMB Engraving overnight from March 8 to 9.

A white soapstone bear carving measuring 17 inches long, 12 inches high and 10 inches wide, and weighing around 100 lbs., was stolen from the store located on Langley Bypass. It is reported to be worth $3,000. An engraving toolbox was also said to be missing.

RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy said police were unsure of the point of entry at this time.  However, they do expect the carving to be brought out of hibernation on websites selling private goods.
