  • Arrest of Surrey man in Winnipeg

Mounties in Surrey say a man wanted for nearly a year on kidnapping and other charges has been arrested in Winnipeg. 

Surrey R-C-M-P say they had a warrant from February last year against 49-year-old Fabian Yul Brown, who was wanted for a number of charges including assault, unlawful confinement, uttering threats, break and enter, fraud and possession of stolen property.

Police say the warrant was extended Canada-wide when they found out Brown may have been living in Winnipeg, and he was arrested there last week. 

Surrey R-C-M-P say Brown is still in custody in Manitoba and will be sent back to B-C to face the charges.
