Cold Lake RCMP have arrested Colton Pelechosky following a four-kilometre foot pursuit involving Police Dog Services.

The 24-year-old Cold Lake male has been charged with obstructing a police officer, two counts of resisting a police officer, five counts of breaching a recognizance, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, failing to stop for a police officer, operating a motor vehicle without the proper registration, and operating an uninsured motor vehicle on a highway.

According to an RCMP media release, It was approximately 9:30 p.m. on Dec. 4 when a Cold Lake RCMP officer was conducting patrols on 47 St. and 69 Ave. when he came across a suspicious male. 

While speaking with the male, who was identified as Pelechosky, the officer recognized him as wanted on warrants out of Cold Lake and Edmonton.

During an attempt to arrest Pelechosky, he resisted and fled on foot.

Police Dog Services were called to assist with the pursuit, and tracked Pelechosky for four-kilometres before locating him hiding under a fallen tree.

He was arrested without further incident and charged.

Pelechosky has been remanded into police custody until his Cold Lake court appearance Dec. 11.
