Chilliwack RCMP blocked a stolen vehicle in at the Bottle Depot on Friday afternoon.


n eagle-eyed RCMP officer did a rolling check on a white Jeep Friday afternoon just after 3 p.m. and found that the plate came back stolen.


The officer didn't want to spook the driver into doing anything foolish in heavy Black Friday traffic, so instead of lighting him up, he kept well back.


When the Jeep swung off Young Rd. onto Rowat Ave., and into the Bottle Depot, the cop made his move and safely blocked it in.


Police had more cars surrounding the Jeep within a couple of minutes.


The suspect was arrested without incident. Police de-plated the vehicle. It's not clear if the plates were stolen and the Jeep as well. This has not been confirmed with RCMP. They had it towed away later.
