Road checks nab man with Canada-wide warrant

Major road checks around Penticton led the RCMP to a man with a Canada-wide warrant for his arrest.



The major road checks around Penticton last week lead to the arrest of a man with a Canada-wide warrant.

A South Okanagan Traffic Services member checked an uninsured vehicle on June 20 which led to a four-day investigation in the rural area between Oliver and Osoyoos.

The 49-year-old man was arrested without incident on June 24 for charges relating to the sexual assault of a young child, and is being transported back to Calgary to face a court date.

This was the fifth warrant executed by police as a result of the road checks from last weekend.
