A Walnut Grove resident is being credited for helping with the arrest of a Langley man possibly responsible for several smash and grabs from neighbourhood vehicles last week.
Langley RCMP were called and told that a man was holding down someone who had broken into his vehicle.
Officers arrived to the 21400 block of 88A Avenue and arrested a 19-year-old Langley man. He was taken to the detachment and released to his grandfather.
Forensic evidence will be taken as well as surveillance footage from one of the homes on that street, said police.
Langley RCMP will be recommending charges against the suspect.
A neighbour called The Times and said she also had her passenger window smashed and change stolen from the inside of her car Thursday morning.
She said three vehicles were hit overnight.
But she claims around eight or more were broken into this week in that same neighbourhood.
Thefts from vehicles is up all throughout Langley, but hot spots include Walnut Grove and Langley City.
