Same robber sought for Saturday robberies in Maple Ridge, Langley

Two robberies took place just after midnight at gas stations, with cash and lottery tickets stolen.

RCMP from both Ridge Meadows and Langley detachments are investigating robberies that appear to be the work of the same set of thieves.

The two robberies took place early Saturday morning. At 12:15 a.m., a lone male gained entry to the Chevron gas station store in the 20500 block of the Lougheed Highway.  After threatening the clerk with a weapon, the suspect stole an undisclosed amount of money and lottery tickets. He then left the gas station in a silver-grey car, possibly a Pontiac Sunfire, which was driven by a female accomplice.

A short time later, at approximately 12:30 a.m. a similarly-described male suspect entered a North Langley Chevron station by shattering the locked glass door.  He then smashed the front counter glass case with a hammer and took over $400 in lottery tickets, He ordered the attendant to open the cash register, and took the coin drawer as well.  The vehicle observed in this robbery was a dark red car,, possibly a Honda.

The suspect is described as a white male in his late 20s or early 30s, approximately 5’8”, with a medium build, no facial hair and dark-coloured eyes.  He was wearing a black, or dark blue hooded sweatshirt which had the word “shady” written on the front, blue jeans and tan coloured boots.  The female accomplice was observed to have long dark hair.

The two detachments have mounted a joint investigation.

Cpl. Alanna Dunlop of Ridge Meadows RCMP said “There is good evidence to indicate this is the same male and female who are responsible for both robberies, so Langley and Ridge Meadows RCMP investigators will be teaming up to solve these incidents.  The RCMP Integrated Forensic Identification Section has been called in to assist.”

Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks said, “As always, we look forward to working together with Ridge Meadows RCMP to identify those responsible and follow through with this joint investigation.”
