Langley Mounties seek car thief and hit and run driver

RCMP are looking for witnesses to two recent incidents.

Normally thieves steal cars by driving them away, but in a Jan. 2 incident in Langley, someone managed to take a Volkswagen Jetta from a parking garage by towing it with a pickup.

Surveillance footage from the garage in the 8900 block of 202 Street showed the dark-coloured crew cab pickup hauling away the Jetta.

The Jetta has since been recovered, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

However, police would like to identify the suspect or the pickup truck.Person of interest.

Police have released a surveillance image of a man who may be a person of interest in the investigation.

Cyclist struck

Langley RCMP are looking for a Honda driver who clipped a cyclist while making an illegal turn last month.

On Dec. 22, a cyclist was riding at the intersection of 66A Avenue and the Willowbrook Connector.

A northbound Honda CRV tried to make the illegal left onto 66A and struck the cyclist, said Cpl. Holly Largy, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

Surveillance video shows the Honda attempting the sharp turn, then coming to an abrupt stop, most likely when the driver hit the cyclist, Largy said.

The driver then gave up on the left turn and headed north towards 208th Street.

The cyclist suffered cuts to the top of his head and to one ankle, Largy said.

Anyone who might have information about either incident can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
