A Salmon Arm resident who managed to flee from police on Nov. 12, has now been taken into RCMP custody.

Vincent Lorne Massie, who was wanted on outstanding warrants for charges including forcible confinement, assault and resisting arrest, was taken into custody without incident last night, Nov. 19, at a residence in West Kelowna.

Police are thanking the media and the public for their assistance, after putting out a public request for help in locating Massie.

The offenses Massie was wanted for originated out of Kelowna and Alberta.
