He was arrested in Gibsons, British Columbia, reports the BBC, after a robbery that took place on the Sunshine Coast.
A statement from the Royal Royal Canadian Mounted Police (via local publication Coast Reporter) explains that the 42-year-old has been charged with four offences, "robbery, disguise with the intent to commit and indictable offense, failing to stop for a peace officer and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle."
"Despite the fact that a disguise was used during the robbery, the suspect was quickly identified by some of our officers, who had recently dealt with him on an unrelated matter," Constable Harrison Mohr adds. "We hope that the community feels safer now that the suspect has been apprehended."
