Three arrested after fleeing police

Three people were arrested in Abbotsford early Saturday morning after a police chase that involved using the RCMP-operated regional police helicopter.

Abbotsford Police received a call about a stolen vehicle entering Abbotsford at about 12:30 a.m., said Abbotsford Police Sgt. Judy Bird.

A spike belt used near Fraser Highway and Mt. Lehman Road failed to the stop the car, which continued driving east.

“We were getting updates from the helicopter about the car’s location,” said Bird.

Police used another spike belt near Whatcom and Vye Roads. Three people — two men and a woman — ran from the car and were arrested a short time later. Police are recommending charges of possession of stolen property and evading police.

“We’re really thankful no one was hurt in this situation,” said Bird.
