Over the last month, residents of Aldergrove and other communities throughout Langley have been victimized by break-ins at community mailboxes. On Monday, March 24, 18 mailboxes were pried open and the mail items may have been stolen in Aldergrove.

Langley RCMP are asking the public to be particularly vigilant and report suspicious people, vehicles or activity in your neighbourhood, especially in close proximity to mailboxes.

Langley RCMP Street Enforcement Unit is working closely with Canada Post postal inspectors and neighbouring police agencies to address the issue and identify the person(s) responsible.
