RCMP Bust Man Who Escaped Custody In 2016

Last week saw Salmon Arm RCMP arrest a man who had escaped custody nearly three years ago.

Police spoke with the man at a local shopping centre on Wednesday, where he provided an incorrect name and no ID.

RCMP recognized the man from his tattoos, and he was quickly detained.

Police say the male escaped from a provincial institution in 2016, and has more than 40 outstanding charges from Ontario, Alberta, and other provinces.

He was remanded back into custody by the next day.
