The vehicle was owned by RCMP Staff Sgt. Suki Manj and his wife, Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth, who were both off-duty and at home at the time.
When Manj spotted the would-be thief he rushed outside in -5 degree temperatures wearing only his shorts and got involved in a struggle with the bad guy.
Hollingsworth called 911 before joining her husband in the fight, along with some neighbours who came to help.
Officers arrived on the scene and arrested a 25-year old man from Chilliwack, who's since been released and will appear in court in February.
The married officers suffered frost-bitten toes while Manj also pulled his back.
