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.

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.
