Four most wanted

Surrey RCMP put out their top four "most wanted" car thieves in late April. Two have already been caught.

Police nabbed 29-yearold Matthew Soper, who was wanted on a slew of warrants, in Penticton.

Then there was 18-yearold Alexander Jelasco. Police say he was bragging online about being on the list. But that’s not how they caught him.

A fight broke out at a Whalley bar near 107th Avenue and King George Boulevard and one of the women involved was taken home by police.

Turns out that’s where Jelasco was staying, and the cops busted him.

Surrey RCMP continue to hunt for Richard Mantler, 44, who is wanted for breach of undertaking, breach of probation and assault and 23-year-old Zak Haight, who is wanted for obstructing a police officer, driving while prohibited and driving while suspended.
