A man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant is in police custody after being arrested in Victoria’s Fernwood community Tuesday evening.

Cameron Gamble, 33, is serving a more than two-year federal sentence for firearms-related offenses.

When he failed to return to his community-based residential facility in Victoria, an arrest warrant was issued.

On Tuesday, just before 7 p.m., the Greater Victoria Emergency Response Team located and arrested Gamble outside the Fernwood Manor near the intersection of Begbie Street and Gladstone Avenue.

Photos from the scene show heavily armed officers taking Gamble into custody without incident.

Police spotted Gamble walking in the area. No other details were released.
