Three Langley residents – two young offenders and one adult – arrested Friday with the help of the RCMP’s dedicated helicopter and a dog team have now been charged in connection with the incident.
Dallas Wayne Ball, 18, appeared in Surrey Provincial Court Monday. He and two 17-year-olds are charged with possession of stolen property under $5,000 and “take/occupy vehicle or vessel without consent of owner.” Ball, who is due back in court July 26, and one of the teens are also charged with breaching conditions.
The incident began when police were called to the 15900-block of Thrift Avenue around 1 a.m. July 15 to investigate a suspicious vehicle. The vehicle – determined stolen – didn’t stop for police, and fled into South Surrey. It was found abandoned on the front lawn of a home in the 1900-block of 148 Street.
A police dog team located three suspects in bushes less than a block away.
