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.
