Fernridge home invasion suspect sought
While his four criminal associates ransacked a Langley house for pot plants, the round-faced 5’7” Caucasian stood guard over the lone occupant of the residence.
The location in the Fernridge area of South Langley was a legal, licensed medicinal marijuana grow operation.
The home invasion occurred on around 3 p.m. on Dec. 26 when five men forced their way into the house.
One was carrying a firearm and one was carrying a knife.
The pot plants were not useable because they were not fully grown, but the thieves did not leave empty-handed. They took a Hewlett-Packard laptop and a cell phone.
The suspects left in a black pickup truck with Olympic plates, possible a Ford F250 or F350.
This week, Langley RCMP released a composite drawing of the suspect who stood guard.
He is said to have “slightly darker skin and big lips.”
