A thief stole a bulky, expensive power tool from a Langley auto supply store last month by simply grabbing it and walking out the back door.
On Feb. 28, a woman in her 30s walked into Princess Auto carrying a leopard print purse.
Her target didn’t exactly fit into the purse.
Surveillance photos released this week by the Langley RCMP showed the woman lugging a large box containing a Hobart-brand plama cutter out of the store.
The plasma cutter is worth more than $2,500, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
The thief escaped through a fire door in the back of the store.
The suspect is described as Caucasian, with brown shoulder length hair, and standing about 5’10”. She was wearing black pants and a light blue jacket over a purple and white shirt.
The RCMP are also looking for some other criminals caught on camera in recent days.
On Jan. 3, a man and woman allegedly stole several perfume bottles from the Shoppers Drug Mart on Fraser Highway in Langley City. Both suspects were wearing blue jeans and hoodies.
On Jan. 11, a group of individuals may have damaged to access keypad for North Langley apartment building. The keypad was pried open and could not be locked for the day, Largy said.
Anyone with information on any of these thefts can contact the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
