With the assistance of a police dog, Saanich police arrested a 24-year-old man early Tuesday morning who broke into a commercial building in the 800-block of Cloverdale Ave.
The alarm call came in just after midnight. An officer observed at least one person was inside the building.
“Despite several warnings, the suspect refused to surrender to police,” Sgt. Steve Eassie said. The canine unit entered the building and successfully found the suspect.
The man was taken to hospital and treated for significant injuries to his arm, likely from climbing through a broken window.
Joshua Mundy, from the Nanaimo area, faces charges of break and enter and possession of a controlled substance.
