The exits of Willowbrook Shopping Centre were closed off briefly today as police pursued a suspected car thief into the building.
According to Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Largy, the suspect stole a car from an unknown location before driving it to the Willowbrook mall and dumping the vehicle in the parking lot.
A foot chase led to the suspect’s capture inside the mall. Witnesses on Twitter report seeing as many as 20 police cars on site, with all entrances blocked.
