A Langley home owner not only chased away a robber from his apartment, he then sketched a drawing of the suspect for police.

On Oct. 27, around 8 a.m., a resident returned from the store to find a man leaving his apartment with three of his laptops stuffed into a backpack. Langley RCMP were called to the apartment complex, located in the 5700 block of Glover Road, shortly after the resident chased the suspect away. The thief dropped the backpack and fled.

Police are now looking to identify this brazen thief, said Cpl. Holly Marks.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, six feet tall, muscular and lean, with short blonde/brown hair, a tattoo on his upper arms (possibly a skull or a tribal design), a ruddy complexion, scabs below his mouth and wearing a white T-shirt. The complainant was able to prepare a sketch from his memory of the suspect and give it to police.

If you have any information or can identify the man in this sketch call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
