An Alberta man is facing possible charges after crashing a vehicle in Kelowna then running away, only to be caught by a police dog.

Kelowna RCMP responded to a single-vehicle crash into a ditch in the 3300-block of Bulman Road, Friday, Oct. 22, just after 3 p.m., according to an RCMP media release.

Witnesses reported the driver fled the area on foot.

Police dog Mysan and his handler located the suspect after tracking him for several kilometres. He was taken into custody without further incident.

RCMP officers seized quantities of what are believed to be illicit drugs from the vehicle and the suspect.

The 32-year-old Calgary man has been released from custody on conditions for a future court date, RCMP said.

The investigation will be sent to the B.C. Prosecution Service and the Public Prosecution Service of Canada for review and charge approval.
