Stolen vehicle with stolen property rams Surrey RCMP cars, police looking for witnesses

ON Sunday at about 10:50 a.m., Surrey R.C.M.P. were advised of a suspicious vehicle, which was turned out to be a stolen vehicle, in the 8600 block of 141st Street. The occupants of the vehicle had apparently been breaking into parked vehicles. The vehicle was seen leaving the area.

Police were initially unable to locate the vehicle.  Around 11:30 a.m., they found it with at least two occupants parked in the area of the 8200 block of King George Boulevard. Police kept the vehicle in view as they waited for backup.

The occupants of the stolen vehicle apparently spotted the police cars arriving in the area and started to drive off.  The stolen vehicle then rammed three police cars, severely damaging two of them.  The stolen vehicle was also damaged and could not move far after it struck the third police car. The passenger fled from the vehicle before it came to a stop. The driver of the stolen truck, a 23-year-old male of Surrey, was arrested at the scene.  He will be appearing in Surrey Provincial Court on  a number of charges.  In addition, a quantity of what appears to be stolen property was located in the vehicle.

Surrey R.C.M.P. are asking anyone who may have witnessed the incident / collisions that occurred in the 8200 block of King George Boulevard to call Surrey R.C.M.P. at 604-599-0502 or to call CrimeStoppers.

Surrey R.C.M.P. are also asking anyone who may have had their vehicle broken into in Surrey on Sunday morning to call the Surrey R.C.M.P. at 604-599-0502 to report the theft, so that the stolen property that has been recovered can be returned to the proper owners.
