Surrey Mounties pursued a stolen car from Surrey to West Vancouver before arresting two people.

45-kilometre pursuit ends in two arrests

Driver of a fleeing vehicle led police from Surrey to West Vancouver, where he and his passenger were arrested.

Two people have been arrested this week after a 45-kilometre police pursuit from Surrey to West Vancouver.

On Thursday at 1:10 a.m., Surrey RCMP patrol officers saw a suspicious vehicle near 102 Avenue and 155A Street.

A grey, 2000 Honda Civic police were following was believed to have been stolen from Port Coquitlam.

Once the driver and passenger spotted the RCMP vehicle in Guildford, the Honda smashed into the police cruiser while fleeing.

The Honda headed west onto Highway 1 and took the highway into West Vancouver.

West Vancouver Police disabled the car with a spike belt and the two occupants were taken into custody.

“The suspects in this case travelled through three RCMP jurisdictions and two municipally policed communities,” said Asst. Comm. Dan Malo, head of Lower Mainland RCMP. “Police worked together trying to stop a reckless driver travelling at high speeds and, through their coordinated efforts, two persons will be potentially facing serious charges.”

Both suspects, who have not been formally charged at this time, are currently in custody.

The driver, a 25-year-old male from Maple Ridge and 23-year-old woman from Coquitlam are both being investigated for possession of a stolen vehicle.
