Prolific property offender finally arrested, say Langley police

Cody Ball of Aldergrove was arrested and faces several charges including flight from police.

Another one of Langley’s prolific property offenders has been arrested thanks to the targeted efforts of Langley RCMP’s Street Enforcement Unit (SEU).

Cody John Ball,  24, of Aldergrove, is now in custody and scheduled to appear in court again on Tuesday.

On Sept. 4, police allegedly observed Ball driving a white Chevrolet Cavalier in the Aldergrove area. The SEU officers knew Ball was prohibited from driving and queries of the license plate showed they should be attached to a brown Oldsmobile Intrigue.

The officers attempted to get Ball to pull over when they allege he appeared to intentionally back his vehicle into an unmarked police car.

Ball fled at a high rate of speed and the officers, giving regard to public safety, did not initiate a pursuit, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. However, charges were immediately forwarded to Crown Counsel for approval.

The following evening, Ball was again observed driving and again, no attempts were made to initiate a police chase to ensure public safety.

A short time later, he was taken into custody without incident when he returned to his home.

Ball remanded in custody and has been charged with two counts of driving while disqualified, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and flight from police.
