Last week a Whitehorse police dog helped catch a man who was later charged with forcible confinement, assault and attempt to evade police.

On June 3, RCMP members were called to help a woman who they determined was being forcibly confined in a vehicle travelling from Carcross to Whitehorse.

Given the potential for harm to the victim, Cpl. Cam Long and his police dog Crash were called to assist. A records check of the driver indicated that he might be in possession of firearms.

Police encountered the vehicle near the Annie Lake Road around midnight. They attempted a roadside stop but the driver fled, speeding off towards Two Horse Creek Road.

The vehicle was found on a dead end road.

Once on scene, Long and Crash assisted with the arrest after the driver refused to show his hands, and was forcibly removed from his vehicle. The driver was injured during the arrest and later received treatment at the Whitehorse General Hospital.

“There was a certain level of force which was used in relation to this incident, however, it is consistent with RCMP training and the Criminal Code of Canada,” the RCMP release states.

Jeremiah Moses, 35, faces a series of charges including forcible confinement, assault and attempt to evade police.

The 31-year-old female passenger was also taken to Whitehorse General Hospital to be treated for undisclosed injuries.
