ABBOTSFORD, B.C. — A couple moving from Langley, B.C., to Manitoba didn't even get out of the Lower Mainland before their plans went sideways, but Abbotsford police hope someone has information that can help the pair. Sgt. Judy Bird says the U-Haul moving truck was packed with almost all the couple's possessions when it was stolen from a hotel parking lot in Abbotsford sometime between last Friday night and Saturday. The truck contained everything from furniture to books, photos and a red Taotao scooter but it was completely empty when it was found on Saturday, in the parking lot of a Surrey secondary school.
