A heavy police presence on the North Shore on Thursday morning was related to Mounties trying to find a 20-year-old man who ran from officers.
Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said an officer on patrol in Brocklehurst saw the man, who was wanted for theft and breach of a conditional sentence order, just before 7 a.m.
Shelkie said the man ran when the officer attempted to stop him.
More Mounties arrived in the area of Holt Street and Cambridge Court and the suspect was arrested at about 7:40 a.m.
Police say there was no risk to public safety.
