Four-Legged Crimefighter Collars Wanted Man in Clearview

Man Wanted on Several Warrants Tracked Down By K9 Unit

The K9 Unit made sure a wanted man will face the music.

Around 4:30 on the morning of December 28th, police came across an unplated vehicle parked on the shoulder of County Road 91 in Clearview Township, with a man sleeping in the back seat. As officers began questioning the man, they say he ran off on foot into a nearby field. Officers figured out the man was wanted on a number of warrants.

The K9 unit was brought in to track the man down, who was allegedly found hiding in another vehicle about a kilometre away. Officers say he refused to unlock the car door, so the window was smashed and a K9 officer was sent in to remove the man from the vehicle.

A 21-year-old man is facing charges including Failure to Comply with Probation, Possession of Stolen Property, and Trafficking.
