Surrey RCMP say two men have been arrested and a firearm has been seized from a vehicle after a “suspicious occurrence” in Whalley.
Police say officers “observed two suspicious vehicles” while attending to an unrelated investigation in the 13800-block of 100th Avenue around 1 a.m. on May 6.
Both vehicles, a Honda Accord and a Chevy Colorado, “abruptly” tried to flee the area as police drove into a townhouse complex, according to police.
“The Honda Accord attempted to drive through a gate of the townhouse complex and became stuck,” notes a Surrey RCMP release. “The Chevy Colorado collided with a police car as it fled the area at a high rate of speed.”
Police say they arrested two men associated to the Honda Civic at the scene, but a third person fled the area and has not been found.
Surrey RCMP seized a collapsible semi-automatic pistol carbine firearm, a hunting knife, and latex gloves, from the Honda.
The Chevy Colorado was also located and seized as part of the on-going investigation.
Surrey resident Ryan Molner, 30, has been charged with ten separate counts including failing to stop for police, dangerous driving and unlawful possession of a firearm.
The second man has been remanded to custody on unrelated warrants and has not been charged in relation to this investigation at this time.
