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.
Angus will appear in North Battleford Provincial Court on December 19.
