A canine member of the Victoria Police Department helped capture a man with a history of running from police Tuesday evening.
The incident started around 5:30 p.m., when patrol officers and the VicPD K9 team were called to the 200-block of Dallas Road for a report that a man – wanted on unendorsed warrants and in breach of his recognizance (bail) – had been seen.
The man fled before police arrived and multiple police units helped search for him. But by 7:30 p.m., police service dog Zender had found him just a few kilometres away, in the 400-block of Quebec Street.
Zender and a human officer took the man into custody without incident or injury. The man was arrested for breaching his bail and additional warrants. He was held for morning court.
