When the Chase RCMP issued their initial plea for help from the public in locating Cameron he was believed to be in the North Shuswap.

On Dec. 28 the Salmon Arm RCMP took Cameron into custody without incident. The arrest was the result of a tip which provided the police with Cameron’s whereabouts and they said they would like to thank the public for their assistance.
