Last week, Langley RCMP released a picture of one of its most wanted “prolific property offenders” and over the weekend, he was caught committing more property crimes, say police.

Police put out an arrest warrant for David Walter Eng, 37, who was caught on Monday with stolen property and break-in tools, said police.

He is currently in jail and appeared in court on Tuesday, facing a charge of theft and possession of break-in tools.

Last Thursday, police released Eng’s picture and said he was a suspect in a recent break-in at the Muse apartments in the 20200 block of Fraser Highway.

Investigators believe Eng and another man, 31-year-old Langley resident Shane Olsen, damaged an access door to get into the secure parking lot.

Several storage lockers were ransacked and property was removed.

According to police, the pair then allegedly stole a Jeep Cherokee and forced the exit gate to open, damaging the lift mechanism in the process.

Olsen was arrested by Langley RCMP Street Enforcement Unit last week.

Eng has a long criminal history and was found guilty of theft under $5,000 in May.
