Two suspects arrested after attempting to evade Mission RCMP

Police say the suspects were driving a stolen vehicle

Two suspects are now in custody after trying to evade Mission RCMP.

Last Thursday (Feb.28) at about 10:45 a.m., police were conducting proactive patrols when they located two suspects driving a stolen vehicle near the area of Stave Lake Street and Lougheed Highway.

When police attempted to stop the stolen vehicle, the suspects fled, hitting a police car in the process. A short time later, police located the stolen vehicle after the suspects abandoned it and ran into a wooded area.

With the assistance of the Integrated Police Dog Service and RCMP Air Services (a helicopter), the two suspects were located and taken into custody.

There were no injuries and the matter was resolved quickly. The incident is still under investigation and charges are pending.

The Mission RCMP is requesting that if anyone witnessed the events they should call the office at 604-826-7161. If you wish to remain anonymous, you can contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
