some amazing footage there. nice editing by the cops.
the criminal made some great moves.
he sure shot through the sliding glass nicely.
the security guards put in a good chase as well.

riding some form of old hog, at that. yes?

The article on Global says he abandoned his bike and got away. I can't imagine that happens very often with a helicopter covering your ass.

All he had to do was ride near an airport then ditch.. But still... it's stupid to endanger anyone else on the roads.

Yeah I don't get that one. He abandoned the bike at Tynhead Park. There's no foliage on the trees right now, the helicopter can see anything in there, with no buildings for a mile.

Anything to do with them drugs they are pushing over there?

I'd assume one would run away pretty fast when high on that stuff. Or ride like that?

Holy Shit! said the cop......Nothing I haven't said when driving/riding through there a few times a year. Glad I don't have to do that anymore....too many out there high on something.

His riding skills are excellent, they must have a good motorcycle trainning program in the Lower Mainland.

So the security guard is in on it. Good one.
I was picking up a subscription there yesterday, asked the lady at the insurance company which is at the bottom of the escalator about it. She said the guy came down there real fast, and luckily timed the automatic door as it was opening for people. Had a look at the metal steps on the escalator, there's a definite scuff at the top where the bike must have bottomed out a bit as it went down the first few steps.

well if they were in on it they were not security guards....just seemed to me like the guy knew were he was heading to the whole time and if so It would make sense to make sure you made the doors without a hang up.....

Take a look at the video, the doors were open by people walking through. The RCMP, and the security guard running after him were not helping him out. Try sprinting down a steel stepped moving escalator and tell me if you can run down faster than a bike going down there? Don't think so.
