Bobcats are a hot item for thieves in Langley

Police say at least three bobcats have been stolen since October

Langley RCMP has now received reports of three bobcat thefts since Oct. 11.

The thefts have occurred all over the Langleys including Willoughby, Langley City and Aldergrove. Two of the bobcats were stolen from construction sites, while the third was taken from the back of a pickup truck.

“Criminals are more industrious than you might suspect and you should take extraordinary steps to secure your property or it may roll away,” said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy. “Consider using locks and chains to secure equipment, or perhaps remove the battery.”

If you have seen any of these bobcats or have information about any of these thefts, call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
