A man was arrested in Langley and another in Surrey in connection to a chop shop discovered on a rural property in Cloverdale on Oct. 13.

IMPACT (Integrated Municipal Police Auto Crime

Team), Surrey RCMP auto crime target team and ICBC executed a search warrant at a rural property in the 2300 block of 176 Street.

The large police presence also brought out the Emergency Response Team, police dogs and Air One. An investigation revealed that this property was being used to dismantle stolen pick up trucks, said IMPACT Insp. Peter Jadis.

Charges are pending on a number of individuals related to the property.

“Most vehicles stolen in B.C. are recovered so it is unusual to find an operation like this where stolen vehicles are being dismantled and reassembled to appear as a legitimate vehicle,” says Jadis.
