Commit the crime – go to jail – in just 11 minutes

Langley, BC – A man appeared in court yesterday answering to charges relating to a break and enter the day prior.

Police were called just before 5:49 a.m. Sunday morning to an auto sales business in Langley City. The alarm company advised a male had cut a hole in the perimeter fence and was attempting to steal the tailgate off a truck. Two other males stood in the alley apparently acting as lookouts.

Richard John WHITE, age 43, of no fixed address is remanded in custody currently facing charges of Break and Enter, Theft of a Motor Vehicle, and three counts of Failing to Comply with his Probation Order – for breaching his conditions or curfew, that he not occupy the driver’s seat of a motor vehicle and that he not possess tools capable of use for criminal activity.
