SURREY â€” Surrey RCMP have three individuals in custody on a number of charges after two stolen vehicles seen speeding into Surrey from Chilliwack were recoved early this morning (Friday).
According to police, two stolen vehicles (both Ford Escapes, one white and one grey) from Chilliwack were observed speeding into Surrey at around 1 a.m. this morning (Oct. 17). As they travelled, the vehicles were being monitored by an RCMP helicopter as well as several police vehicles that were monitoring from a distance, so as not to provoke a pursuit.
At around 1:30 a.m., the white Escape ended up driving into a ditch near 64th Avenue and 156th Street, at which point officers arrested the 27-year-old driver once he was deemed OK. The man, from Surrey, is well-known to police.
The grey Escape continued on before stopping in at a parking lot in the 7100 block of Hall Road, at which point the male driver and female passenger fled on foot. Using the RCMP’s Police Dog Services, officers were able to arrest the two, a 34-year-old Langley man and a 23-year-old female from Delta.
Following the trio’s arrest, multiplate charges of possessions of stole property, flight from police, dangerous driving and breach of conditional sentence order were approved. Police say both stolen vehicles appear to have possible stolen items inside.
