Chilliwack, BC – The timely arrival of RCMP and police k-9 JANGO led to the arrest and charges against a break and enter suspect.

On April 28, 2021 around 10:30 p.m., Chilliwack RCMP supported by the Lower Mainland District Integrated Police Dog Service (IPDS) responded to a call from an alarm company to report a man attempting to break into a storage container belonging to a business in the 45000-block of Luckakuck Way.

At the scene, Police Service Dog JANGO immediately began to follow a track of human scent locating a suspect near the address. Police quickly arrested a 39-year-old man from Edmonton, Alberta.
