Alberta man wanted on 11 outstanding charges, arrested in B.C.
VANCOUVER B.C. – A 48-year-old Alberta man, wanted on 11 outstanding charges from an alleged incident in Fox Creek, including kidnapping and forcible confinement, has been arrested in B.C.
Nanaimo RCMP say David Jones Rogerson was arrested Wednesday after he drove off a ferry at the Departure Bay Ferry Terminal at about 10:30 p.m.
Police had received information earlier in the evening that Rogerson was onboard the ferry from Horseshoe Bay, driving a black Jeep Cherokee with Alberta plates.
Working closely with BC Ferries, plain clothes officers boarded the ferry as it landed at the terminal, allowing officers to focus solely on Rogerson’s vehicle.
“This is an excellent example of the ongoing co-operation and support we receive from BC Ferries,” said Staff Sergeant Sorab Rupa, acting officer in charge of the Nanaimo RCMP. “While there were many unknowns surrounding this individual, the risk to the public was minimized and his arrest was done without any significant disruptions to other patrons onboard the vessel.”
