No, not the Realtors®. Thieves have been posing as prospective ‘buyers’ and stealing small valuable items from homes being shown for sale including jewelry and electronics. There have been a rash of thefts from Langley open houses according to a bulletin sent out to all FVREB Realtors. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear of similar problems in Vancouver. If you’re holding an open house you might want to keep an eye on your stuff:
Multiple thefts at Langley open houses and private showings
Langley RCMP are asking members to be on the lookout for suspicious “buyers” targeting showings in the City and Township of Langley and to remind homeowners to secure their valuables.
Between May 2 and 10, thieves stole jewellery (rings, necklaces and watches), designer sunglasses and electronics on counters and in drawers. No suspects have been identified.
Please report any suspicious activity to the Langley RCMP at 604.532.3200.
