Three people in two Ford Escapes were arrested after a pursuit through four municipalities on Friday morning.
Just after midnight, a Chilliwack man reported his car stolen and witnesses helped RCMP locate it and another Escape in that city.
The two stolen cars took off and headed west on Highway 1 through Abbotsford, Langley and into Surrey.
Once the cars began to speed excessively, Mounties broke off chase and allowed police helicopter Air One to continue pursuit.
One of the cars drove into a ditch at 156 Street and 64 Avenue. The single occupant was unharmed and arrested without incident.
The 27-year-old South Surrey driver is known to police.
The second vehicle continued and was seen pulling into a parking lot in the 7100 block of Hall Road.
The male driver and female passenger fled on foot. With the assistance of police dog services, the two were located and arrested.
The 34-year-old driver from Langley and his passenger, a 23-year-old from Delta, are known to police.
All three suspects were arrested on multiple charges of possession of stolen property, flight from police, dangerous driving, and breach of conditional sentence order.
