Two men robbed the Old Navy store in a odd incident that included an attempted break and enter soon after at a Willoughby condo complex a few blocks away Wednesday afternoon.
Police were called just after 12:30 p.m. and were advised that two males had entered the Old Navy carrying knives and demanding the clerk open the tills.
The clerk advised this could not be done without a manager.
â€œThe males werenâ€™t satisfied with that answer, so they grabbed two entire cash registers and fled the store,â€ said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
Police believe they fled in a stolen vehicle.
Both males wore black hoodies, dark pants, gloves and bandanas.
Not 10 minutes later, police received a report of a break and enter in progress to a residence in the 20400 block of 66 Avenue.
The suspects were two males matching the description of the Old Navy culprits.
â€œFurther, they were associated to the same stolen vehicle which was located nearby and seized,â€ Marks said. â€œPolice also located one of the cash registers which has been seized for examination.â€
The Lower Mainland Police Dog Services was brought in to help with the manhunt but was unable to establish a truck and the males got away.
The Langley RCMP would like to hear from anyone with information on these incidents.
