As officers were responding, updates were called in advising the suspects were east on Robertson Crescent driving erratically. The truck was reported to be travelling at high rates of speed, not stopping at stop signs and colliding with other vehicles. The truck was located abandoned on the road at 264th Street and Robertson Crescent.

Witnesses reported seeing occupants run from the truck into the treed area along Robertson Crescent. This area is described as heavily wooded with thick undergrowth of brush and brambles with some marshy areas.

Responding officers were quickly supported in the search for the occupants by members of the Lower Mainland Integrated Police Dog Services, Lower Mainland Integrated Emergency Response Team and Air Services. Two male suspects have since been located. The pair, a 27 and 30 year old are known to police, have been arrested and transported to Langley Detachment.

Investigators have determined the truck to have been stolen earlier this morning from the 21000 block of 45A Crescent in Langley and involved in three separate hit and run collisions prior to the occupants abandoning it. Fortunately, no injuries occurred in any of the collisions.

The investigation is ongoing and police are requesting anyone with information to contact the Langley RCMP at 604 532-3200.
