Thief drives stolen Cadillac through garage door

A thief made off with a customer's car not before driving through Langley Broco Glass first. Vehicle recovered in Maple Ridge.

The owner of the Langley Broco Glass arrived to his shop to find his garage bay door in his driveway and a customer's Escalade taken on May 20.

Shawn McMahon is used to fixing broken glass but when a thief drove through his Broco Auto Glass garage bay window, there was not much he could do.

“When I got here my garage door was in the middle of the driveway and a Cadillac Escalade I had parked in the shop was gone,” said McMahon about the May 20 break-in.

A thief had broken into the front door and stolen the Cadillac, making off with the vehicle by driving through the garage door.

“Why the thief had to drive through the door instead of just opening it?”

McMahon has owned the glass shop on 199 Street and Fraser Highway for 13 years and nothing like this has happened before.

“Because of the time of night I had to stay at the shop all night,” he said.

Langley RCMP responded quickly and sent Air One to track it down but the Escalade wasn’t located that night.

Ridge Meadows RCMP spotted it a couple days later and recovered the vehicle. A spokesperson for the Ridge Meadows RCMP didn’t know if any arrests were made or if charges were being recommended.

If you know anything about this break-in or the Cadillac, call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
