Whitehorse RCMP are on the lookout for suspects after a daring prison break late Wednesday evening.

The escapee has grey-and-white fluffy, curly hair and is said to resemble the famous Hollywood canine Benji.

The loose dog, a spaniel mix, had been nabbed on Hanna Crescent in Whitehorse’s Kwanlin Dun village on Tuesday.

At 1:08 a.m. Wednesday, police responded to a security alarm at the Whitehorse Animal Shelter on Quartz Road.

They discovered someone had cut through the fence and broken the lock on a back door of the shelter.

Once inside, suspects stole a computer tower and the Benji-like dog found earlier in the day.

A fastfood trailer near the animal shelter was also broken into, but so far nothing has been reported stolen. CO
