These two women are suspected of shoplifting at a few stores in downtown Langley in the past couple weeks.

Thieves come in all ages, abilities and haircuts, as seen recently with a pair of suspected female shoplifters who come in using walkers and sporting crew cuts.

Langley RCMP and the Downtown Business Association are warning about the women after several businesses along the one way on Fraser Highway have been robbed.

The Passionate Home was the first to report that they had the two ladies in their store on Saturday, July 28. The women are accused of taking three pairs of earrings and two necklaces.

The older suspect, thought to be around 50-years-old, used a wheelchair on the Saturday and came back the next day pushing a walker.  Both have crew cuts and the younger one, thought to be in her 40s, has a tattoo up the back of her leg.

They returned the next day with three large, open shopping bags tied to their walkers.

The younger one engages the shopkeeper in conversation and directs attention away from the older woman who is alleged to take the goods.

Langley RCMP said they are investigating after receiving a couple reports of shoplifting by the pair. If you have information about these suspects or about other robberies call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or at Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
