North Battleford police dog tracks suspect involved with cocaine trafficking

An Edmonton man is facing possession charges after being tracked down by the North Battleford RCMP’s police service dog.

At about 9 a.m. on December 17, members of the Battlefords Gang Task Force were on patrol and spotted a vehicle driven by a man with warrants out for his arrest. RCMP tried to stop the vehicle but it fled and the RCMP did not pursue it.

The vehicle was later seen at a residence on the 1800 block of 91st Street. Officers and a police dog followed the tracks from the vehicle to a residence in the area and spoke with the people living there. They were able to find and arrest the suspect without incident.

In searching the vehicle, Mounties found a significant amount of cocaine and crack cocaine.

Thirty-year-old Trent Angus is charged with flight from police, dangerous operation of a vehicle, possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking and numerous charges for failing to comply.
