Break-in attempt at Langley’s Otter Co-op

Smash and grab reportedly fails to get past security gate

At attempted break-in at the Otter Co-op on 248 Street near the Fraser Highway in Langley did considerable damage to the entrance, but the crooks couldn’t get past the internal security gate.

Around 3 a.m. Saturday morning, it’s believed three men used a stolen pickup truck to smash through the main entrance doors, but were unable to get through the sliding metal gate that was locked behind the glass doors.

Founded in 1922, the Otter Co-op is one of Canada’s largest co-operatives, with more than 50,000 members and 400 employees.
