It was a bad night to be a car thief in Langley

A car theft crackdown produced three arrests Tuesday night (Oct. 18) in Langley.

The joint operation involving undercover police officers from the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) and the Langley RCMP Street Enforcement Unit resulted in the arrest of three separate car thieves in three different stolen cars.

During the course of the evening, a 20-year-old suspect was busted in a stolen Nissan Altima, a 31-year-old suspect was arrested in a stolen Honda Accord and a 42-year-old man was arrested in another stolen Honda Accord.

All three vehicles were stolen in the Langley area and all three suspects are said to be well-known to police.  The suspects were locked up at the Langley RCMP Detachment and numerous charges have been recommended, police said.
