South Surrey RCMP are looking for two males after a suspected stolen car was found crashed into a tree early Monday.

Police say officers patrolling in the area of 24 Avenue and 136 Street around 2:30 a.m. Nov. 15 became suspicious when the driver of a 1993 Mercury made a sudden U-turn on 134 Street in an apparent attempt to elude police.

Following, the officers discovered the Mercury crashed head-on into a tree at 26 Avenue and 134 Street. The vehicle’s doors were open, and no one was inside.

While a police dog team’s efforts to track the suspects were unsuccessful, the activity did not go unnoticed by area residents.

John Atwood said he called Surrey RCMP around 3 a.m. in an attempt to find out what was prompting police to keep their sirens going “for a solid half hour” at that time of the morning.

A dispatcher told Atwood not to worry, but that was about it, he said.

Police confirmed other calls were received regarding the incident, but could not say if those calls were also complaints.
