A Burnaby woman suspected of auto theft was arrested by New Westminster police in Surrey early Tuesday (July 15).

The NWPD said at about 2:40 a.m. one of its patrols spotted a blue Volkswagen Jetta that had been reported stolen in Langley several days earlier.

The vehicle was followed over the Pattullo Bridge without any emergency equipment being activated. New West police were able to lay down a spike belt on the bridge deflating two of the car's tires.

Shortly after getting across the vehicle ended up in a ditch at 132nd Street and 112B Avenue in Surrey.

Phyllis Louise Clark, 37, faces charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000, flight from a police officer, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, driving while disqualified, and possession of a controlled substance.
