Tactical police officers were called to help capture a fugitive in the Shuswap with numerous warrants for his arrest.
Salmon Arm RCMP Staff Sgt. Scott West said on Sept. 6 an officer located a male in the area of the Trans Canada Highway, 30th St NE and 9th Ave NE who was known to have multiple arrest warrants .
“The male fled from the patrol car and with the assistance of the general public, police were able to determine the suspect was hiding in a residence on 8th Ave NE,” said West in a press release.
The residence was surrounded and the South East District Emergency Response Team attended to make entry into the residence if required.
After approximately three hours, the man exited the residence and surrendered to police without incident.
“The male was taken into custody for a number of arrest warrants from the North Okanagan and Salmon Arm detachments,” said West.
“One of these warrants pertained to a robbery in Ranchero where a shotgun was discharged at a victim.”
The other warrants pertained to various offences which included break and enter, assault with a weapon, possession of stolen property, flight from police and breaching conditions of bail.
Ryan Charron, 32, is in police custody awaiting a bail hearing.
