SELKIRK, Man. — Manitoba RCMP say a man who they described as armed, dangerous and a threat to the public has been safely arrested.
Earlier Wednesday, RCMP said Wesley Manfred Wadien, who is 38, is wanted on allegations of uttering threats and pointing a firearm, as well as arrest warrants for other offences.
Police said the warning applied to the Selkirk, Interlake and Winnipeg areas.
RCMP Superintendent Rob Lasson said a man was being sought by police after a suspect pointed a shotgun in Selkirk, Man., Tuesday and then fled from Mounties.
Lasson said regular Mounties, an RCMP tactical unit, dog teams, a police helicopter and drones were used to look for him and the search continued Wednesday.
RCMP said Wadien was arrested Wednesday night in the RM of Rockwood north of Winnipeg.
