VIDEO: Dash cam video captures allegedly stolen vehicle in Harrison Hot Springs

RCMP report a vehicle was stolen in Chilliwack May 17, spotted in Harrison and dumped in Deroche

A report of a stolen vehicle in Chilliwack last week had Mounties from multiple jurisdictions on the lookout from Harrison Hot Springs to Deroche.

The case began with a report of a vehicle stolen from the 6800-block of Swanson Street in Sardis just after midnight on May 17.

Chilliwack RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail said much later that morning closer to noon, the Agassiz RCMP reported spotting the vehicle in Harirson Hot Springs.

And while the RCMP will not yet confirm the connection, David Elderkin was driving on Hot Springs Road on May 17 when he captured a few harrowing seconds of a speeding car pass his vehicle, then weave around oncoming traffic.

Rail said the allegedly stolen vehicle was a grey 1992 two-door Nissan, which matches the vehicle in the dashcam video.

The vehicle was next spotted by an RCMP member of the Lower Mainland District’s Police Dog Service who reported the car heading west on the Lougheed Highway.

It was later located at Lougheed Highway and Nicomen Road in Deroche.

Officers from the Mission and Agassiz RCMP along with the dog service looked for the occupants but nothing turned up.

“They conducted a thorough search of the area but suspects were not found,” Rail said.

The only description given of the men is that they were each in their 30s, one wearing a black T-shirt and ball cap and one wearing a red T-shirt.

Rail said the file points to the inter-jurisdictional nature of policing in the Upper Fraser Valley.

“Crimes occur and criminals will cross jurisdictional lines and police will cross jurisdictional lines, too,” Rail said.

The Agassiz RCMP has conduct of the alleged stolen vehicle file, and anyone with information is asked to call them at 604-796-2211 or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
