Langley thieves steal everything from art to copper pipes

A savagely destructive burglary left a Langley homeowner missing everything from valuable Chinese artworks to the copper pipes from the walls.

In March, a resident in the 20400 block of 28th Avenue reported the break in to police after some time spent away.

Officers found that the thief or thieves had broken in by prying open a rear door.

There was extensive damage to both the exterior and the interior of the house, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The thieves had cut the telephone cables, and ripped the BC Hydro power meter off the side of the house.

They had then ransacked the interior of the home, taking a large television set, jewelry, and some valuable artwork.

They also seem to have pulled out the copper pipes. Water was running through the house after the burglary.

Based on the last date that electrical power was monitored being used at the home, police believe the thieves entered on Feb. 18th.

Investigators have released photos of stolen artwork, and are asking anyone who has seen them, or has any information about the burglary, to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. To remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
