Delta police officers deployed a spike belt Friday in Ladner to stop a stolen vehicle.
Officers queried a vehicle in downtown Ladner and discovered it had been reported stolen out of Richmond three days earlier. It was followed at a distance so officers could deploy a spike belt in an attempt to disable it.
Once the vehicle was stopped near Highway 17 and Ladner Trunk Road, the driver and lone occupant was observed throwing cocaine out the window prior to his arrest.
The driver was subsequently taken into custody without incident, and drugs and money were seized.
The driver was later released on a promise to appear in court at a later date.
