Wanted man Brandon White has been arrested.
The Victoria Police Department issued an advisory on Tuesday (Sept. 6), asking for the public’s help in locating White, who was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant after failing to return to a halfway house in Victoria.
He is serving a more than three-year federal sentence for robbery, arson, break and enter, and disguise with intent.
White was arrested Wednesday morning. At approximately 7:30 a.m. patrol officers located him in a vehicle in a parking lot in the 2600-block of Fifth Street. Members of the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team, along with VicPD, advised White that he was under arrest. White, according to a police release, did not follow police directions and officers used a loud distraction device and pepper spray to remove him from the vehicle and arrest him.
He will be returned to the custody of the Correctional Service of Canada.
