Suspected thief skips court

A woman who failed to turn up for a court date on theft charges is wanted by the Langley RCMP.

Police are looking for a prolific property offender, 21-year-old Brittney Deering.

Deering is currently facing charges of theft under $5,000 for two separate incidents.

On May 31 last year, the RCMP were called to the Tan de Soleil salon in the 19900 block of 72nd Avenue after staff there discovered a number of bottles of tanning lotion were missing from a display shelf, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

Police checked the security video and conducted some more investigation that led to a charge against Deering.

On July 30 a watch valued at more than $250 was snatched at the Langley Winners. The thief ran out of the store, but Deering was eventually charged in relation to that theft as well.

Deering was under a probation order that required her to stay at a particular address, follow the rules of that home, and not possess or consume any prescription or non-prescription drugs.

In addition to the theft charges, Deering is now wanted for three counts of breach of probation related to her conditions.

Marks said Deering has now failed to appear for a court date and police are asking the public to help them locate the young woman.

Police make more frequent checks on prolific offenders, who are local offenders who have had a large number of charges, often thefts, over a short period of time. 

Deering is Caucasian, 5’3” tall, and weighs 126 pounds. She has brown hair and green eyes.

Anyone who can help police locate Deering can call the RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
