Langley RCMP are hoping to arrest a thief who stole from a new mother’s room at the maternity ward at Langley Memorial Hospital on March 30.

What should be a joyous occasion for parents was tarnished by a thief who came into their room and stole money and their iPad.

Now Langley RCMP is releasing surveillance footage of a person of interest in hopes someone can identify her.

Both parents had left the room with their new baby and on their return found things not exactly as they had left them, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks.

After itemizing their belongings, they noticed both their wallets had been taken along with their iPad.

Police have reviewed the surveillance footage for the maternity ward and would like to speak with the woman in the photograph.

“She was in the ward around the time of the theft,” said Marks.

The same crime took place on the maternity ward at Lions Gate Hospital recently.

If you have any information that would assist police to identify this person of interest call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.  Should you need to remain anonymous, call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
