An arrest warrant has gone out for Derrick Evans

Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man wanted for stealing mail from a Langley City apartment building in October.

Derrick Stuart Evans, 32, is wanted for theft of mail relating to charges from an Oct. 10 incident where it is alleged Evans broke into an apartment building in the 5500 block of 201A Street and stole mail.

Police were called around 4:30 a.m. when witnesses said they had seen the suspect in the front lobby.

Police located Evans and a female a short distance from the building and they were arrested for the break in. The pair were found to have letter mail from the apartment, some screwdrivers, pry bars and a flashlight.

Evans is Caucasian, 5’11” tall, 170 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He has no fixed address.

If you have information that would assist police to execute this warrant, call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Earlier this month, Langley RCMP put out a warning that mail theft was rampant. Police promised to step up enforcement and asked people pick up their mail everyday.
