RCMP in St. Paul are saying one of their police dogs played a crucial role in tracking down a suspect in a stolen car. Police say on May 29th a member of the St. Paul detachment spotted a vehicle that had been previously reported stolen from a rural property near Lac La Biche.
Police were able to track the vehicle using a dog from the St. Paul Police Dog Services Unit to a home in Saddle Lake. It was at the home where police arrested a 25 year old man in connection with the crime. He’s facing charges including possession of property obtained by a crime and is due in St. Paul Provincial Court on June 28th.
“The St. Paul RCMP will continue to collaborate with the Eastern Alberta Crime Reduction Unit to identify crime trends and target repeat offenders,” says Staff Sergeant Corey Blize, St. Paul RCMP Detachment Commander.
