File # 2021-14518

Motorists in the Milner area this lunch hour got front row seats to some ‘action’ between the police and a Langley Prolific Offender.

The officer was driving on Glover Road and observed an individual riding a bike he knew to be wanted on an arrest warrant. The officer pulled his car over stopping the male and his female companion from continuing down the road.

The officer made an arrest attempt that was impeded by the female. She then got in the driver’s seat of the police car. The male suspect was able to break free of the officer and joined the woman in the car. Unfortunately, they didn’t get far. The car went into a ditch and then drove into a gate. The pair exited the vehicle and fled on foot.

Fortunately, both Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Services and ERT were in the area and able to assist in tracking the suspects. The male suspect was taken into custody and the female was taken to hospital for medical treatment as she appeared to be in some distress.

Police will prepare a Report to Crown Counsel detailing the day’s events. The BC Prosecution Service will determine which charges the 23-year-old male and 36-year-old female will face.
