A date has been set for a Preliminary Inquiry for a 32-year old man, arrested in Quesnel with the aide of a police dog.

Nathan Doucette is due back in Provincial Court on November 23rd.

Doucette is charged with Break & Enter with Intent to Commit an Indictable Offence, Possession of Property Obtained by Crime and Dangerous Operation of a Motor Vehicle.

Quesnel RCMP say a patrolling officer observed a vehicle back on February 20th that had been reported stolen from Prince George.

He says the driver then noticed him and took off at a high rate of speed.

Police say the vehicle was then located unoccupied a short time later on a dead end street in North Quesnel.

Officers set up containment in the area and called in a police dog for help.

A man was arrested a short time later.

RCMP say a suspect was hiding under a tarp inside an outbuilding less than 100 meters from where the vehicle was located.

Police say the man suffered minor injuries related to a confrontation he had with the police dog.
