The timely arrival of RCMP and police k-9 JANGO led to the arrest and charges against a break and enter suspect.

On April 28, 2021 around 10:30 p.m., Chilliwack RCMP supported by the Lower Mainland District Integrated Police Dog Service (IPDS) responded to a call from an alarm company to report a man attempting to break into a storage container belonging to a business in the 45000-block of Luckakuck Way.

At the scene, Police Service Dog JANGO immediately began to follow a track of human scent locating a suspect near the address. Police quickly arrested a 39-year-old man from Edmonton, Alberta.

Gregory Jay Derksen is charged with mischief, fail to comply with order and possession of break-in instruments. Mr. Derksen is released from custody pending a future court date.

A timely response by Chilliwack RCMP and police service dog JANGO are responsible for the apprehension of the suspect, says Corporal Mike Rail spokesperson for the UFVRD. Our team of officers and support services remain dedicated to the safety of the community – and it doesn’t hurt to have JANGO on that team.

RCMP remind anyone who witnesses anything they believe to be suspicious in nature to contact police at 604-792-4611 or, should you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
