Owner of motorcycle that tore through Surrey Wal-Mart has been fined with 58 infractions

Owner of this motorcycle has been fined $13



The owner of a motorcycle that raced through a Surrey mall has now been fined more than $13,000.

While police are unable to put the owner on the motorcycle at the time of the infractions, they are fining him as the registered owner of the bike.

It was Feb. 20, when the bike was seen tearing down 104 Avenue, with police helicopter and police squad cars in pursuit.

At some points, the driving became so dangerous, police cars broke off pursuit.

Then the biker headed down the escalator of Guildford Mall into Wal-Mart, and weaved through shoppers, racing out another door.

The bike then tore down 104 eastbound, crossing a pedestrian overpass and evading police.

The motorcycle was found dumped in North Surrey by the Port Mann Bridge.

On June 6, police served the registered owner with $13,500 in traffic fines.

The violations included 58 traffic infractions including failing to stop for police, excessive speed, disobey red light and no insurance.

The motorcycle has been seized and is pending the outcome of a civil forfeiture hearing.

“We’re thankful no one was seriously injured due to the motorcyclist’s reckless driving,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann. “While we were unable to positively identify the driver of the motorcycle, we are still able to hold the registered owner to account in this instance, in accordance with the British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act.”

In B.C., the registered owner of a motor vehicle is responsible for it at all times.
