2 ‘prolific offenders’ arrested after spike belt used on Highway 1, Abbotsford police say




Two “prolific offenders” are in custody after an incident early Sunday on Highway 1 in Abbotsford, B.C., according to police.

While on a normal highway patrol, Abbotsford police officers spotted a known stolen vehicle between McCallum Road and Clearbrook Road around 3:30 a.m.

Police officers ahead of the stolen car were able to deploy a spike belt to stop the vehicle, which then quickly caught fire due to friction caused by deflated tires.

Abbotsford firefighters quickly doused the flames early Sunday.
