Cops on trail after three Ford F-350s taken

The couple liked the Ford F-350s, so much so they stole two of them and were working on a third.

The couple liked the Ford F-350s, so much so they stole two of them and were working on a third, until they were nabbed by local police.

Ridge Meadows RCMP’s street enforcement unit followed up some leads Monday and followed two stolen Ford F-350s that were being driven out to east Maple Ridge. After arriving at the remote location, the pair vandalized the trucks then took off again.

Police followed them again as they went on another scouting expedition for a third F-350. They made an arrest when the third truck was in the process of being stolen.

Police say a top priority during the investigation was keeping tabs on the suspects but not allowing a dangerous vehicle chase to develop.

RCMP say police forces around Metro Vancouver have noticed a jump in the number of vehicle thefts and thefts from vehicles.

Robert Adam Mack, 34, and Sarah Louise Winters, 29, appeared in Port Coquitlam provincial court on Tuesday charged with possession of stolen property over $5,000, mischief, and arson damaging property. Both were remanded in custody.
