Police ask for tips on mail theft

The Langley RCMP are looking for a man who may be connected to the theft of mail from a Walnut Grove housing complex.

On Oct. 23 last year, a resident called in the police after a theft from her mailbox in Southwind Estates, in the 21100 block of 88th Avenue, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the local RCMP.

The victim noticed that new chequebooks and a new credit card that had been mailed to her had not arrived, Marks said.

She also started receiving cheques written on her account, which had been rejected for not having sufficient funds. Someone had been attempting to cash cheques drawn on her bank accounts.

An ATM surveillance photo was later collected of someone who police would like to speak to about the investigation, said Marks. Police are asking anyone who can help them identify the man to call in with a tip.

The public can call either the main RCMP number at 604-532-3200, or to leave an anonymous tip, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
