UPDATE: Kamloops halfway house offender arrested in Alberta.
A man police say violated his parole by taking off from his designated residence in Kamloops is now back behind bars.
Kristopher Pack was arrested over the weekend by police in Edmonton. He was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for allegedly fleeing his designated residence in Kamloops.
Pack was serving a two-year federal sentence for theft over $5,000, failure to stop and dangerous driving, and has in the past been convicted of crimes involving violence, weapons and theft.
Police say he’s also known to be a drug user.
Pack is not from Kamloops.
His past criminal offences are all from northern B.C. — Dawson Creek and Prince George.
His parole could be revoked and it’s possible he could face new charges as well.
