Police briefs: Pickup driver who struck pedestrian sought by police

  • Dec. 20, 2013 1:00 p.m.

Langley RCMP is looking for the pick up truck driver who struck a pedestrian at the intersection of 48 Avenue and 219 Street Thursday morning.

A witness called police at 9:15 a.m., after a female pedestrian was struck in a crosswalk in the intersection. The female passenger in the pickup truck exited the vehicle, checked on the pedestrian and got back in the vehicle, which drove away, eastbound, on 48 Avenue.

The pedestrian wasn’t injured in the collision but police would still like to speak to the truck’s driver. The truck is described as a green Ford F series pickup with a white canopy.

Bikes Stolen

Langley RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance to locate a motorcycle and mountain bike, stolen from a property in the 2700 block of Warren Place on Dec. 12.

The two bikes were taken overnight from a fenced backyard. The motorcycle is a custom built Honda CRF 250x, red and white in colour, valued at approximately $10,000. The mountain bike is a custom painted Kona.

Watches Found

Langley RCMP would like to reunite a large collection of wristwatches with their rightful owner. The watches were turned in to the Langley City Community Police Station on Dec. 12. They were found inside a coffee can. The watches appear to vary in value; however the bigger concern would be sentimental value, said police.

If you have information about any of these incidents call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.
