Suspicious Vehicle and Building Fire
2017-06-28 10:32 PDT
File # 2017-22529
On June 28th, 2017 at approximately 0245 hours the Langley RCMP received a request from the Langley Fire Department to assist them with a vehicle fire at 20360 Langley Bypass. Initial information indicated that there was a vehicle on fire and that the building at that location may also be on fire. Once on scene it was confirmed that there was a Super Save Hydro Vac truck on fire. The truck had crashed into the building, and the building was also engulfed in flames. No persons were located at the scene and it is believed that whomever was driving the truck fled the scene. The business, Vancouver Auto Liquidation Center, is a fenced compound and the truck did crash through the fence. The Super Save truck has been confirmed as stolen.
The Langley RCMP are aware of a similar incident occurring in Surrey just after this incident. At this time it is too early to confirm if the two incidents are linked. Langley RCMP investigators are in contact with Surrey RCMP and will be working with their investigators in the event the two files are associated. The property representative of the business has been notified.
Anyone who may have been in the area of 203 and the Langley Bypass at approximately 0245am and saw anything suspicious is asked to contact the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or Crimestoppers.
