Police have reduced their “Top 10” most wanted list to nine, after capturing one of the suspects Tuesday afternoon.
On Tuesday morning, Surrey RCMP made a plea to the public for help in finding 10 people who have allegedly dodged authorities for some time. Outstanding warrants range from drug offences to property crime to violent assaults.
Just hours after RCMP released their Top 10 list, Randall Johnson was arrested without incident in the 13600 block of 20 Avenue in South Surrey.
The 41-year-old was wanted on a warrant for dangerous driving causing bodily harm, obstruction of police officer and operating a motor vehicle while being pursued by a police officer.
Police are still asking for public assistance in locating the other people on the list.
“We want the community to be our eyes and ears so that we can quickly apprehend these individuals,” said Surrey RCMP Cpl. Drew Grainger. “If you do spot this person, do no approach them and please contact your local police right away.”
Anyone with information about these people or their current whereabouts is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Grainger said the Surrey RCMP are using the Top 10 list to raise awareness and possibly urge some of their acquaintances to let police know where to find the suspects.
“It’s our way of trying to reduce crime, not just in Surrey, but in the entire region,” Grainger said.
The RCMP has posted the Top 10 list photos on its website (http://bit.ly/dh9hJA )and will put a red “X” over the images when the person has been located.
