Prolific offender Ian Gerald Mountain has been taken into custody by the RCMP, more than three months after police initially released a B.C.-wide warrant for his arrest.

Mountain, 33, was wanted for possession of property obtained by crime, possession of a prohibited or restricted weapon with ammunition, driving while prohibited, and failure to comply with recognizance.

He has an extensive criminal record for various offences including theft, drug trafficking, and assault.

The Agassiz RCMP had been looking for Mountain in the Agassiz and Chilliwack area over the summer, and initiated a massive police response at the Cheam First Nation in August in response to reports that Mountain was there.

Police did not find Mountain at the residence in question at the time.

In regards to the RCMP’s November arrest, Rail did not release details on where or how it took place, but thanked the public for their assistance in Mountain’s arrest.
