Police in Cobourg, Ont., have arrested a man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant.

On Tuesday morning, officers in the downtown core reportedly observed the suspect.

According to police, the man fled from officers but was arrested a short distance away after allegedly assaulting officers.

Police say a subsequent search uncovered cash, a pill press and a large quantity of drugs — including cocaine, fentanyl, methamphetamine and hydromorphone — with an estimated street value of $10,000.

Daniel Hulme, 40, of Oshawa, was arrested and charged with assault with intent to resist arrest, five counts of possession of a Schedule 1 substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and possession of anything for use in production/trafficking of a Schedule 1 or Schedule 3 substance.
