Trial set for high-speed flight accused

A man arrested in connection with a high-speed chase through White Rock and Surrey is to be tried in Surrey Provincial Court next year.

One of three men arrested in connection with a high-speed chase through White Rock and Surrey is to be tried on the charges in Surrey Provincial Court next year.

According to court records, Brandon Nathen Teixeira learned Tuesday that the case against him is to be heard June 11 and 12, 2014.

The charges stem from an early morning incident this past June 28, when a grey Jeep Cherokee spotted driving dangerously in White Rock was tracked to the area of 62 Avenue and 126 Street by police helicopter.

Two of the three who were arrested were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

Teixeira, 22, is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from a peace officer, break-and-enter and wilfully resisting or obstructing a peace officer.

In July, the court imposed conditions on Teixeira including that he not be in any motor vehicle unless the owner is also present, that he abide by a 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and that he have no contact with the two other co-accused.

A trial-confirmation hearing is scheduled for May 6.
