A vehicle owner will arrive back from an out of town trip to find his grey Dodge Durango is now in a wreckersâ€™ yard after it was set on fire.
The RCMP was notified just before 8 a.m., on Sept. 16 to 201st Street and 80th Avenue for a vehicle fire, explained Langley RCMP Const. Craig van Herk.
â€œThe fire department called us in,â€ he said.
No one was found with the vehicle and the owner has been out of town.
â€œIt looks like it was probably a dumped stolen [vehicle],â€ he said.
In another Sept. 16 incident, a pickup truck hit a power pole and the transformer was blown, van Herk said.
The incident was at 264th Street and 56th Avenue.
â€œHe did the right thing,â€ van Herk said.
The driver remained at the scene after causing property damage, and was issued a ticket for driving without due care and attention.
