West Shore RCMP has arrested two suspects for stealing a car from Surrey, B.C.

In the early morning of Dec. 14, the bike patrol unit located a stolen vehicle in an underground parking lot of a condo building near the 2600-block of Sooke Road in Colwood.

The 2017 Kia Forte was occupied by two suspects, later identified as 26-year-old Jordan Beaudry and 27-year-old Vanessa Perris-Ellington.
