Neighbour reported as many as 11 RCMP cruisers at Extrom Road property in Ryder Lake

The rural Ryder Lake area of Chilliwack was the scene of a large police presence early Thursday morning for the arrest of a male accused of a break and enter.

One neighbour reported seeing 11 RCMP cruisers on Extrom Road near Forester Road at approximately 6 a.m.

Chilliwack RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Mike Rail confirmed officers were dispatched to the 5700-block of Extrom at that time. The large police presence arrived to cordon off the area and set up a perimeter.

An officer with the RCMP’s Police Dog Service attended. The dog tracked down the suspect and he was arrested without injury, according to Rail.

The suspect was likely to be in court on Thursday, but no name is yet available.
