Police respond to a chase that ended in a crash at 80 Street and River Road.

Gunfire, car chase through Surrey and Delta, lead to three arrests

The driver of a pick-up truck pursued the group apparently shooting at him.

A hail of bullets, a call for help, a dangerous high-speed chase and an eventual crash resulted in the arrest of three men this week.

On Monday at 7:50 p.m., a man approached a suspicious vehicle parked in his neighbourhood near 48 Avenue and 152 Street. The occupants fired a gun at the man’s pick-up truck, causing him to call police.

The driver of the pick-up truck then decided to pursue the people in the suspicious Pontiac to Highway 99, then to Highway 17, and on to 80 Street and River Road, where the Pontiac crashed into a BC Hydro power pole.

The three people inside were injured in the collision, but not seriously, and were taken to hospital and arrested.

The three people in the car are known to police. It’s unclear whether the driver of the pick-up truck is known to authorities.

One of the suspects, 25-year-old Cory Lee Myers from Surrey, has a Canada-wide warrant for failing to comply with probation as well as a local warrant for break and enter.

Investigators are seeking additional information from any witnesses to the incident who have not yet spoken to police. Police also stress that deciding to engage in a vehicle pursuit of any kind is not recommended.

“Despite repeated requests to stop pursuing the suspect vehicle, the citizen refused to comply with our commands,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Paul Hayes. “When you pursue a vehicle or suspect, not only are you putting your life and the general public’s lives at risk, you risk being charged yourself and could face criminal and civil consequences. We encourage citizens who notice suspicious people or vehicles to contact the police instead of confronting people themselves.”

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502 or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
