RCMP in the Kootenay region say they’ve arrested a man described as “one of British Columbia’s most wanted.”

Robin Bousquet was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for breaching the terms of his parole. Earlier this month, the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP warned the public he “should be considered violent.”

In a media release, Nakusp RCMP said they received a tip Saturday evening that Bousquet was staying at a home in the nearby community of Fauquier.

Bousquet will be returned to a federal prison to serve out the remainder of his sentence, police said.
