VicPD took to the streets yesterday for Warrant Wednesday, resulting in the arrest of 15 men and women wanted on a variety of offences. 

On Wednesday, April 13th VicPD officers focused on locating and arresting individuals wanted on outstanding warrants in the city. 

The day-long project ultimately led to the arrest of 15 people who were wanted on a variety of offences, including mischief, assault with a weapon, breach of probation, assaulting a police officer, uttering threats, and assault causing bodily harm.

The day-long enforcement project was shared on Twitter as #VicPDWarrantWednesday.

Amongst those arrests were two men wanted on Canada-wide warrants for parole revocation. The two were arrested separately in the 500-block of Johnson Street. 

Both men were serving federal prison sentences and were returned to the custody of Corrections Canada.

Previous warrant enforcement projects led to the arrests of 23 people in January 2021, and 27 people in May 2021. Offences varied from mischief and  breaches of release orders, to assault causing bodily harm, sexual assault and sexual interference involving a youth.
