Man wanted on warrants arrested

Police have arrested a violent Penticton man who was wanted on outstanding warrants.

Jessy Arthur Michaud is facing charges of assault with a  weapon, possession of a firearm contrary to a court order, careless use or storage of a firearm as well as multiple breaches of probation relating to incidents in July.

Michaud was consent remanded to the Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre Wednesday.

Police issued a brief release stating that Penticton RCMP attended a local motel and arrested Michaud without incident.

Michaud’s next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 13.

Crown counsel Chris Balison told the Western News that Michaud was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, a shotgun, on July 13 in Penticton.

The date coincides with a man who was caught on Penticton Courthouse security footage entering the courthouse carrying a DeWalt toolkit that was later reported as holding a loaded shotgun.
