On September 28th, 2023, at 11:00 a.m., RCMP in Logan Lake, BC responded to a report of a 37-year-old man who fled from the Vision Quest Society recovery housing program. The man was under a court order to remain at the facility.

Frontline officers immediately converged in the area, and upon an officer locating the man, he immediately ran, and jumped over a fence where officers lost sight of him.

Due to the proximity of the Logan Lake Elementary School, the school's Shelter-in-place policy was put into effect, while officers attempted to apprehend the man.

With the assistance of a Police Service Dog, the man was found hiding in an out building, where he was safely taken into custody.

The man was held in custody to appear before a judge. Charges of breaching his release order, obstruction and mischief are being forwarded to the BC Prosecution Service.
