Langley Mounties are appealing for the public’s help to identify suspects in a number of recent crimes, including two assaults, credit card fraud, and the shoplifting of an entire case of vodka.
On Nov. 16, a man pushed a cart into the rear passenger door of a vehicle in the parking lot of the Langley Walmart, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.
The impact left a dent above the wheel well. When the driver got out to check on the damage, the man who had pushing the cart allegedly attacked him.
The man was accompanied by a woman, and the two left in a white Jeep, said Largy.
Another assault took place on Nov. 28 when a man slapped a clerk at the Shoppers Drug Mart in Willowbrook across the face, Largy said.
Most of the other crimes police are looking into involved thefts, including:
• A man and a woman used a stolen credit card at Home Depot and Shoppers Drug Mart on Nov. 1, racking up more than $3,000 in fraudulent purchases.
• A Caucasian man around 45 stole a bike from the rack at the Langley City Library on Nov. 14. He has a brown beard and was wearing a black Puma baseball hat, blue jeans, and a grey hoodie.
• A woman allegedly walked out of the Willoughby Liquor Store with a case of vodka on Nov. 16. She took the vodka to a man who was waiting outside with a bicycle, pulling a child carrier, said Largy.
• A woman allegedly shoplifted from the Aldergrove Mark’s Work Wearhouse on Nov. 18 while with a child who was about eight years old. The woman is described as Caucasian, in her mid-40s, with black hair with bangs. She was wearing all black.
• An elderly man on a mobility scooter allegedly took a Dyson vacuum cleaner worth almost $1,000 from Best Buy on Nov. 25.
• A man stole various home items from Superstore on Nov. 15.
