A quick response by Surrey RCMP Frontline officers, the Surrey Gang Enforcement Team (SGET), and Air 1 led to the arrest of a man and woman and the preservation of evidence, including a loaded gun.
On May 6, 2021 at 7:20 p.m., Frontline officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop with a vehicle for a Motor Vehicle Act violation. The vehicle failed to stop for Police and fled at a high rate of speed. The Air 1 helicopter was in the area and was able to observe the vehicle from a distance and provide direction to officers on the ground.
Following the directions of Air 1, Frontline officers and SGET Members converged in the area of 8200 – block of 120 Street as the vehicle went into an underground parkade. A man and a woman were arrested for fail to stop for police and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
Further investigation led to locate and seize a loaded firearm and drugs pre-packaged in a way which is consistent with drug trafficking.
The man and woman were released with conditions, without charges. Investigation is ongoing.
