RCMP arrest suspect after wild ride through Newton streets



A vehicle which fled from Surrey RCMP Saturday night Newton was finally stopped when a police SUV rammed the car near 72 Avenue and 132 Street.

There were no serious injuries in the collision, which occurred after the suspect vehicle fled when Mounties attempted to stop the White Ford Crown Victoria near 140 Street and 74 Avenue at approximately 10 p.m.

Police did not pursue the vehicle, which drove over front yards and through fences, as well as into oncoming traffic.

RCMP successfully used a spike belt, but the car did not stop, prompting police to make the decision the ram the vehicle, which finally came to a stop on 72 Avenue near 133B Street.

The suspect was arrested, treated at hospital for minor injuries, then taken to jail. The two officers in the SUV were shaken up, but not injured.

RCMP closed 72 Avenue for a few hours to conduct an investigation.
