Incident Date/Time: August 21, 2017 8:30 p.m.
Location: 9000 blk Collings Way
DPD File: 17-18226

At approximately 8:30 p.m. August 21, 2017 a patrol officer traveling westbound on Nordel Way noticed a Honda Civic travelling at a high rate of speed. When the officer attempted to pull the vehicle over, the driver of the Honda fled the area at a high rate of speed. Police did not pursue the vehicle but broadcast the description to other patrol officers.

Within minutes citizens called Delta Police to report a vehicle driving at a high rate of speed in the 9000 blk of Collings Way. A second caller reported that a vehicle had just struck a parked vehicle in the same area.

Police responded to Collings Way and complainants indicated  the male driver had fled on foot from the vehicle. It was evident that the vehicle was stolen as the ignition had been punched.

Delta Police set up containment and requested a K-9 unit attend the scene. K-9 was deployed but lost the track near the railway tracks in the area.

An officer conducting roving patrols near Nordel Court located a male matching the description of the driver of the Honda and took him into custody without incident.

The 22 year old male from Surrey now faces charges of flight from police, possession of stolen property, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and prohibited driving.
