RCMP dog sniffs out vandals

After car windows were smashed at Pronto Towing early Saturday morning, Terrace's RCMP dog sniffed out the vandals.

Alongside Toma, a german shepherd breed of dog trained to assist RCMP, was handler Cpl. Rob Budvarson — and the two caught up with three youth who were then arrested.

At 3 a.m. June 23, RCMP were called with a complaint of three youth smashing car windows at Pronto Towing on Queensway Dr. Upon arrival,  police saw three youth running away, sliding down a slope, according to an RCMP press release this afternoon.

"The area was dark with little to no artificial light," said Cst. Angela Rabut of Terrace's RCMP in the release.

The youth continued to run after police identified themselves, but Toma was able to track each youth, leading to their arrests.

"Police arrested a 14 year old girl, a 14 year old boy and a 15 year old boy for break and enter and mischief," said the release.
