"This matter is still under investigation and additional charges will be recommended against Woods and his female accomplice," he said.

The incident occurred on Nov. 26 when officers were patrolling the neighbourhood following an increase in reports of thefts from vehicles in the area.
Police noticed a suspicious vehicle and when they approached the two suspects immediately fled.

The vehicle was found again a short time later on Seaforth Way. The female passenger was arrested but the male driver fled on foot.

After a short chase involving the K9 unit, the second suspect was apprehended in a nearby yard.

Police are asking anyone who witnessed or has information regarding this matter to contact them at 604-461-3456.
