Langley: A Langley RCMP officer on routine patrol saw two young men trying to steal a Honda Civic in the middle of a quiet Walnut Grove street. The officer attempted to stop the car but the driver fled from police at a high rate of speed towards Fort Langley.  Insp. Tim Shields said that Air One, the Lower Mainland Traffic Safety Helicopter, was dispatched to assist and the car was quickly acquired by the Tactical Flight Officer inside the helicopter. The Honda was then followed only from the air while being videotaped by the Tactical Flight Officer using a thermal imaging camera. Two men were later arrested.
