Police in Langford are asking the public for help as they investigate a brazen break-in that culminated in the theft of two vehicles and a trailer.

The incident occurred around 7:15 a.m. on Sunday, West Shore RCMP said in a news release Wednesday.

A thief or thieves broke into Island Earth Landscaping's business parking lot at the corner of Westhills and Langford Lake drives, bringing with them a "newer model" Ford F150 pickup truck, according to police.

The trailer has B.C. licence plate 41922U, and the two ATVs are a blue 2020 Yamaha with licence plate 19256X and a green Yamaha with no licence plate attached, according to RCMP.
