On November 11th, 2017, the Langley RCMP received a phone call of a suspicious vehicle in the neighbourhood by a concerned Brookswood resident. The licence plate number revealed that the vehicle may have been used in another recent Robbery in Langley. Langley RCMP officers and an off duty member attended the area and observed a 'purse snatching' in progress of an elderly female in the vicinity of the Royal Bank near 200B St. and 40th Ave. The officers arrested a female suspect, but a male, who was driving the reported suspicious vehicle, fled the area. RCMP Air Services and Police Dog Services responded and assisted in the apprehension of the male driver.
It was determined that the recovered vehicle was a reported stolen vehicle. A subsequent search of the vehicle led to recovery of evidence relating to four other Theft/Robberies that had been committed in Langley between November 3 and Nov 10, 2017 and these matters are ongoing; however:
Brent Christopher JACKSON, 37 years old, of Port Coquitlam, has been charged with 1 Count of Robbery, 1 Count of Possession of Stolen Property Over $5,000, 1 Count of Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle, and 1 Count of Driving While Prohibited / Licence Suspended. He currently remains in custody with his next Court appearance scheduled for November 20th, 2017.
Daena JUDD, 41 years old, of Maple Ridge, has been charged with 2 Counts of Robbery and 1 Count of Possession of Stolen Property Over $5,000. She currently remains in custody with her next Court appearance scheduled for November 20th, 2017.
This is a great example of the Community and the Police working together to combat crime. Citizens should be aware of their surroundings and suspicious behavior such as vehicles that appear to be out of place, idling for long periods of time, or returning to one location multiple times, especially heading into the Holiday Season. To enhance your own personal safety citizens should deposit or withdraw large sums of money during daylight hours when the bank is open and there are lots of people around, and if not have a friend escort you.
