Wanted man runs straight into Surrey cop’s arms

Suspect flees from Transit Police, only to come face-to-face with Surrey RCMP officer.

A fugitive wanted on a Canada-wide warrant tried to run from a Transit Police officer in Surrey last Friday night – only to bump right into an RCMP officer.

It was shortly before midnight on July 26 that a transit officer at the Gateway SkyTrain station saw two men who appeared to be in the midst of a drug deal. As he approached, the men saw him and ran.

The officer recognized one of them as a wanted man from a police bulletin and gave chase.

The suspect ran southbound from the station, near 108 Avenue and 134 Street, turned the corner at 108 Avenue, and ran directly into a Surrey RCMP officer who was on routine patrol in the area.

The man was taken into custody and turned over to Transit Police. The second man got away.

Vancouver’s Fabian Yule Brown, 39, was arrested on three warrants involving five charges.

The Canada-wide warrant was for two counts of robbery and one of break and enter. There was also a Surrey RCMP warrant for drug possession and an Integrated Road Safety Unit warrant for prohibited driving.

Brown is in custody and has a court appearance Aug. 6.
