Motorcycle involved in police chase seized
Surrey: A motorcycle used to evade police in a movie-like stunt through Guildford Mall, even hurtling down an escalator, has been seized by RCMP and its owner fined about $13,000. Mounties in Surrey announced Tuesday that even though officers can’t identify the driver in the Feb. 20 video of the escapade, they are holding onto the bike pending outcome of a civil forfeiture hearing. RCMP Cpl. Scotty Schumann said the 58 traffic violations that led to the fine included speeding, disobeying a red light and driving without insurance. Schumann said registered owners are responsible for their vehicles at all times and can choose to provide officers with information about who was driving during an offence. Owners who don’t cooperate can be charged with the offence under the Motor Vehicles Act, he said.
