High River and Okotoks RCMP used a police dog to track down an intruder that had broken into the MagCan Plant north of High River on April 6th.

Police were called to a report of a break and enter in progress at the TransCanada MagCan facility near Aldersyde.

The security fence had been cut and the facility entered.  Numerous piles of copper wire were located outside.  

A single set of footwear impressions were found leading from the facility to the wire and eventually departing the site.

The RCMP Police Dog Service was contacted and tracked the footwear impressions to a lone male hiding several kilometers away in another business.

Cedrick Chouinard, of no fixed address, was arrested and charged with two counts of break and enter and one count of resisting arrest and will appear in Okotoks Provincial Court on June 8th, 2018.
