OPP’s repeat offender parole enforcement (ROPE) squad says a federal offender wanted for breaching release conditions was arrested in Kingston.
According to OPP, Thusanth Ariyanayagam was picked up Tuesday night by Kingston police after he fled a halfway house in the city Monday evening.
His arrest came just hours after OPP sent out a call to the public asking for help to find him.
Ariyanayagam is currently serving a two-year sentence for assault with a weapon, assault and breach of recognizance.
Kingston police is working on a response to provide more details about Tuesday night’s arrest.
