Aldergrove tipsters help RCMP nab thieves

Two Abbotsford men are in custody as a result of police and the Aldergrove community working together to stop crime.

Two Abbotsford men are in custody as a result of police and the Aldergrove community working together to stop crime.

On August 27 just prior to 4 p.m. Langley RCMP was called to Aldergrove when two community-minded witnesses called to report a break and enter in progress.

The two suspects were seen breaking into a shop in a detached shed on a property in the 2300-block of 272 Street. They were seen going back and forth from the shed to their vehicle, carrying a variety of items.

The first officer who arrived saw one of the suspects fleeing on foot. This suspect was apprehended after a short foot pursuit.

The second suspect also attempted to flee but was found hiding in some bushes nearby.

As the officers took the two suspects into custody, they were informed of a recently reported stolen vehicle from Abbotsford that turned out to be the vehicle used for this break and enter.

Police will recommend charges for the two men, aged 41 and 42, both of Abbotsford.

Inspector Stephan Drolet, Operations Support Officer for Langley RCMP said he found “it encouraging to see our community looking out for each other and instances like this, where the suspects are apprehended, the property returned and nobody hurt, demonstrate the benefits of us all working together to keep our community safe.”
