A Surrey man wanted by the Kelowna RCMP for armed robbery turned himself in to Mounties in that city Thursday morning.

Devan Markcus Wong was wanted for multiple offenses related to an armed robbery late last year.

Surveillance cameras caught images of what police believe is 19-year-old Wong robbing Premier Jewelry and Loan Dec. 6, last year.

Cameras mounted to the dash of a police car showed that RCMP were shot at when they arrived.

A second later, the cruiser camera shows a police dog and handler pursuing the suspect.

He scaled a 10-foot fence before the dog caught up with him. He escaped down an alley.

The suspect is believed to have carjacked a vehicle, forcing the occupant to drive him to a West Kelowna trailer park, where he switched vehicles.
