Suspected carjacker, shoplifter sought

The Langley RCMP are looking for a pair of criminals, one a carjacker, the other a shoplifter.

At about 9 p.m. on Dec. 9, a Langley man was sitting in his car outside of Ed’s Market in the 20700 block of 42nd Avenue, when he was attacked, said police.

The attacker punched the man and took his car, heading south down 208th Street.

The victim ran into Ed’s Market and called the police, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

Police found the vehicle a short time later in the 20500 block of 24th Avenue. The victim’s iPod and wallet had been taken.

The RCMP are now releasing a photo of a suspect taken from surveillance video. The suspect is Caucasian, in his mid 20s, standing 6’0” tall, with an average build and possibly facial hair. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a black Adidas track suit with white stripes, and he was carrying a “murse,” or satchel.

Police also have a surveillance photo of a suspect in a shoplifting incident that took place on Feb. 23 at The Bay at Willowbrook Shopping Centre.

A member of store security saw a man walk through the store’s south entrance with a coffee maker worth about $150.

The man, a Caucasian between 30 and 40 years old, got into a white Mazda 3. He is described as standing 6’4” with a medium build, and was wearing a black UA baseball cap, a grey sweater, black vest, and blue jeans.

Anyone with information on either incident can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
