Video: Infrared cam catches auto thief pursuit
Canadian chase captured by FLIR camera
LANGLEY, B.C. - Three Langley, British Columbia auto theft suspects picked a bad night to flee police on Thursday May 5.
Footage released by the RCMP shows their unsuccessful bid to avoid arrest was captured by the FLIR camera (Forward Looking Infra Red camera) aboard Air 1, the Eurocopter EC-120B Colibri operated by the RCMP Lower Mainland traffic section.
The video, viewable on the Langley Times and RCMP websites, followed a stolen Ford Explorer from above as it careened through city streets.
