Updated: Surrey RCMP apprehend suspect in double carjacking, pileup in Cloverdale

Suspect was wanted in connection with stolen vehicle that caused multiple vehicle crash, and then fled in SUV with a baby on board.



The hunt for a double carjacking suspect involved in a multi-vehicle pile-up at Fraser Highway and 68 Avenue has ended.

A suspect has been apprehended at a home in the 15900-block of 96 Avenue.

Extensive police patrols were underway this afternoon after reports at 12:30 p.m. of a man with a gun in Cloverdale escalated into two carjackings, including one involving a baby in the backseat of an SUV, Surrey RCMP said.

The baby – apparently unharmed – and the stolen Ford SUV were found abandoned in the area of 96 Avenue and 158 Street, and has been reunited with his mother.

Police were already on their way to the scene of the initial report of a man with a gun in the area near 186 Street and Fraser Highway when word came that a Toyota pickup had been stolen by someone matching the description.

A woman was inside the vehicle.

The Toyota was subsequently involved in a crash on Fraser Highway and 68 Avenue involving multiple vehicles. The suspect then used a second vehicle, a Ford Escape SUV with a baby in the back seat, to flee the scene.

The Ford Escape was found abandoned, with the baby inside, at 96 Avenue and 158 Street. The baby has been reunited with her mother and is apparently unharmed.

A gun was recovered from inside the Toyota pickup.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male who’s approximately six feet tall, with bad skin and short hair, wearing dark clothes.

Surrey RCMP’s Serious Crime Unit is investigating, along with assistance from the Criminal Collision Investigation Team and the Integrated Collision Analysis Reconstruction Service.
