Mounties nab ice cream lover after break in

Langley Mounties responded to a break in only to find the alleged perpetrator calmly eating ice cream when they arrived early Friday morning.

Just after midnight, officers headed to the break in at an auto-related business in the 19600 block of Fraser Highway, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

It didn’t take long for the police to find their man.

Marks said the front window had been smashed, and the suspect was calmly sitting inside, eating ice cream from a staff freezer. He was using a car key as a spoon, Marks said.

He politely greeted the officers and said he had just come in to use the phone.

The man was arrested without incident.

The suspect, who turned 31 the following day and has no fixed address, was later released and faces a recommended charge of breaking and entering. He is scheduled to appear in Surrey Provincial Court on Jan. 30.
