Two Surrey teens are in custody after an early-morning home invasion in Langley on Thursday.
Just after 1:30 am, Langley RCMP responded to a residence in the city’s Brookswood neighbourhood, for reports that two people had made their way into a home, stolen a number of items, and then stole a vehicle to make their getaway.
Officers arrived in time to see the vehicle in question fleeing the area.
However, with the help of Air One, police tracked the vehicle into Surrey, where it stopped at the intersection of 168 Street and 92nd Avenue, after two of its tires were deflated by a police spike belt deployment.
At that point, four people got out of the vehicle and started to run, but Lower Mainland Police Dog Services was able to establish a track and locate two of the suspects.
Now, a 16 and a 17-year old, both from Surrey, have been arrested and police will be recommending charges.
In the meantime, the investigation into the identity of the two outstanding suspects is ongoing.
Items stolen from the residence were recovered in the vehicle and will be returned to the owner, police said.
