Wood Buffalo RCMP have arrested a Janvier man wanted in connection with a number of crimes across the region.
The Mounties first asked for the public’s assistance in locating Leslie Quintal last week Wednesday.
On Thursday around 12:30 a.m., Quintal was spotted driving around Janvier. When officers went to arrest him, he fled on foot with the pursuit ending in a wooded area.
Quintal was arrested on a number of outstanding warrants.
He now faces additional charges.
Quintal was scheduled to have his first hearing Thursday.
