A man who was wanted on numerous charges in Saskatchewan was arrested in Winnipeg Friday morning.
Police were looking for 31-year-old Matthew Barker after a late-April incident in Aylsham, southeast of Nipawin.
Police say during that incident on April 25th, Nipawin RCMP attempted to stop the driver of a truck in that village, but they did not stop and instead fled the scene. The truck was determined by the police to be stolen, and Barker was charged after an investigation by officers.
In addition to the charges from that incident in Aylsham, Barker had warrants issued for his arrest from multiple RCMP detachments in Saskatchewan, as well as Manitoba.
The investigation involved numerous agencies and detachments, including the Saskatchewan RCMP’s Enforcement Response Tea-WEST, the Tisdale, Nipawin and Rose Valley RCMP detachments, the Manitoba RCMP Crime Reduction Enforcement Support Team and Emergency Response Team and Saskatchewan conservation officers with the Provincial Protective Services Branch.
