Thieves busy in Langley

Thieves must have had a crane to make a heist in the Aldergrove area around Jan. 13, Langley RCMP believe.

A large stainless steel tank had been stored at the back of the business, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

The tank is 28 feet long, five feet wide, and two feet deep. It weighs about 3,000 pounds.

The thieves managed to make off with the tank despite its vast size.

In another case the police have also released a surveillance photo of a man suspected to taking five bottles of Grey Goose vodka from the Willoughby Liquor Store on Jan. 11.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, in his 30s, 6’ tall, with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a white checked shirt and blue jeans, and left the parking lot in a car that may have been stolen earlier in Surrey.

Anyone with information about either crime can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. To be anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or visit, or text BCTIP and details to CRIMES (274637).
