Police have taken three young offenders into custody after coming across a “demolition derby” in a mall parking lot, according to a release from police.

While on routine patrol around 6 a.m. yesterday, officers located three stolen vehicles smashing into each other and being raced at Chinook Centre parking lot.

When approached by police, two of the offenders fled on foot while the third vehicle sped away, nearly hitting a Calgary police officer.

The two suspects that fled on foot were caught a while later with the use of K9 resources.

The third offender was also arrested several hours later. Police are not looking for any other suspects in this case.
