A 31-year-old Surrey man is in custody after allegedly crashing two stolen vans into two different police cars in Maple Ridge late Saturday.

Mounties said they were following a stolen van on Eagle Avenue just before midnight when it suddenly reversed into their vehicle. The driver took off, abandoning the van at the end of a cul-de-sac.

The suspect then tried to drive off in a second stolen van, according to police, but crashed it into a different cruiser. The van was flipped onto its side during the crash.  

Police arrested the suspect, who was treated in hospital for minor injuries. He is due in court on Monday, Jan. 21.
