Car thief drives through glass shop’s garage bay door

Cadillac Escalade stolen from shop, with thief driving it through bay door.

Shawn McMahon is used to fixing broken glass, but when a thief drove through his Broco Auto Glass garage bay door, there was not much he could do.

“When I got here my garage door was in the middle of the driveway and a Cadillac Escalade I had parked in the shop was gone,” said McMahon about the May 20 break-in.

A thief had broken into the front door and stolen the Cadillac, making off with the vehicle by driving through the garage door.

“Why the thief had to drive through the door instead of just opening it?” he asks.

McMahon has owned the glass shop in the 19900 block of Fraser Highway for 13 years, and nothing like this has happened before.

“Because of the time of night I had to stay at the shop all night,” he said.

Langley RCMP responded quickly and sent Air One to track the vehicle down, but the Escalade wasn’t located that night.

Ridge Meadows RCMP spotted it a couple of days later and recovered the vehicle. A spokesperson for the Ridge Meadows RCMP didn’t know if any arrests were made or if charges were being recommended.

If you know anything about this break-in or the Cadillac, call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
