Three teens arrested after spate of car break-ins in Fort Langley

Three teens were arrested and one 17-year-old had the Mazda he was driving impounded, after people started calling police about young men hanging around parked vehicles in Fort Langley.

At approximately 4 p.m. on Monday, July 2, Langley RCMP received a report of two men checking door handles of vehicles in the area of Billy Brown Road and Muench Trail in Fort Langley.  Callers indicated the two men were likely associated with a black Mazda. Police arrived in the area and were able to quickly identify the vehicle, occupied by three men.

Two of the individuals matched the description provided and the officer noticed a variety of items inside the vehicle.

The driver, a 17-year-old from Surrey, who was suspected of consuming liquor was issued a 12-hour suspension and a number of violation tickets.

The Mazda was impounded.  The other two passengers were 18-year-olds from Langley.  Police may also recommend charges relative to the stolen property once the investigation is complete, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks.

Langley RCMP were able to return some property to local residents where a name or phone number was present on the item.

But there are still a number of items not yet returned to their rightful owner, including:

- prescription glasses;

- compact discs;

- car cell phone chargers;

- Apple earbuds;

- a knife;

- golf balls;

- a measuring tape; and

- a variety of USB cords.

Some of these items are pictured at langley.rcmp.ca. Police are hoping to return these items to their rightful owners and are asking anyone recognizing their property to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
