KAMSACK, Sask. – RCMP have arrested a wanted man found hiding on a Saskatchewan reserve.

Last week, warrants were issued for Adam Cote, 28, on numerous charges including assault in causing bodily harm, possession of a controlled substance and break and enter.

On Friday, RCMP attended the Key First Nation after receiving information that suggested Cote was there.

Cote was found hiding in a residence and was taken into custody. He suffered injuries during the arrest and received treatment in hospital.

Mounties say a dog from the community was shot and killed during the arrest after the animal attacked an RCMP police service dog.

Cote is now facing additional charges of resisting arrest and breach of undertaking.

He is scheduled to appear in Yorkton provincial court on Wednesday.
