A 57-year-old Langley man had his truck impounded and was issued a 90-day roadside prohibition after calling police on Tuesday, March 29 to say his vehicle had been stolen.

A Langley officer was dispatched to 216 Street, near McLeod Athletic Park around 1 p.m. after a man called police saying his vehicle had been stolen. Prior to police arriving to speak with the owner, the man called back to say his truck hadn’t been stolen, it was just parked somewhere else.

A Langley traffic officer driving near the area noticed the complainant’s truck nearly hit another vehicle in a traffic circle. The officer pulled the driver over and noticed he was showing signs of impairment. The Langley driver failed a breathalyzer and  his vehicle was impounded.
