A young man with a Vancouver warrant for his arrest is also in hot water with officials in the Comox Valley.

On the morning of July 21, the Comox Valley RCMP responded to a report of a break, enter and theft from a residence in the 500 block of Holiday road in Fanny Bay.

An alarm was triggered and a property representative went to check on the house, as the owner was out of town. Upon arrival, a male was seen leaving via the rear door of the residence.

The description of the young man was given to police and a man matching the description was located hitchhiking on Highway 19 near the house.

The man was taken into custody and found to have a laptop computer in his possession that was later identified as being stolen from the house. The young man was also found to have a warrant for his arrest outstanding in the City of Vancouver.

The police service dog also attended and found the trail that the suspect used and it was followed right to the spot that the male was hitchhiking.

He was held in custody and will appear in court on break, enter and theft charges.
