Can you hear me now?
Langley RCMP are putting out a warning not to let people borrow your cellphone to “make a quick call” after several reports of smartphone thefts.
There have been a couple of recent incidents of cellphone thefts at the Logan Avenue bus loop. Different suspects have gone up to someone and asked to borrow the person’s phone to make a quick call.
Once the person lends them the phone, they take off, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks.
“Protect your cellphones. If you want to help a person out, give them a quarter, but don’t give them your $700 phone,” said Marks.
If this has happened to you and you haven’t reported it to police, call Langley detachment at 604-532-3200.
