OSOYOOS – A wanted man who took off when RCMP knocked on his door in Osoyoos Thursday is behind bars.
RCMP say the officer went to a home on Gravenstein Drive to arrest Dillan Cote, 20, wanted on outstanding warrants, including possession of stolen property and obstruction in connection with incidents in Penticton and Edmonton.
Cote took off, shirtless and shoeless.
Back-up was called in from the Oliver and Osoyoos detachments and the hunt began.
“Police service dog Tig immediately established a track and was able to safely locate Cote hiding in the bushes nearby,” Corp. Jason Bayda says in a media release.
The Nanaimo resident is in custody and could face more charges as police continue to investigate.
