A man believed to be attempting to steal copper wire from an abandoned business in Abbotsford on Sunday night was treated in hospital for minor bites from a police dog.
Police received a report at about 5:30 p.m. that a person could be heard rummaging around the building in the 33800 block of South Fraser Way.
Police entered the building with guns drawn and searched the facility before bringing in a police dog. The suspect was found hiding under a tarp in the crawl space.
When he refused commands to come out, the dog apprehended the man, who was then arrested.
