Janet Olson has been ordered to stand trial.

South Surrey ‘dog rescuer’ to stand trial

A South Surrey woman facing criminal charges in connection with alleged ‘dog-rescue’ efforts has been ordered to stand trial.

A South Surrey woman facing dozens of criminal charges in connection with alleged ‘dog-rescue’ efforts has been ordered to stand trial.

Surrey Provincial Court officials confirmed the order regarding Janet Olson was made June 11 following a preliminary inquiry, and that the proceeding will be heard in New Westminster Law Courts.

Olson is next scheduled to be in that courthouse on July 11. A date for trial has not been set.

Olson was arrested in November 2011 in connection with the theft of a bulldog from a Coquitlam backyard. A Surrey woman arrested at the same time, Louise Reid, was sentenced last September after pleading guilty to stealing two dogs, including the bulldog. The charge against Olson – along with the dozens of other charges laid in the months following her arrest – has not been proven in court.
