High-risk sex offender Christopher Schafer was arrested in Vancouver Friday, after failing to return to his residential correctional facility 15 days ago.
Vancouver police issued a Canada-wide warrant for 40-year-old Schafer on Oct. 26.
Schafer is a federal offender who has a long criminal history that includes break-and-enter, sexual offences, uttering threats, robbery and assaulting a peace officer, according to police. He has had his community release revoked on a number of occasions.
“[Schafer] was not committing additional offences when he was apprehended,” police said in a statement Friday.
Investigators will be looking into his whereabouts since disappearing more than two weeks ago.
