Police have captured a man who skipped court while being prosecuted for a laundry list of offences.
Saskatchewan RCMP appealed to the public in their search for Kurt Miller in April, after he failed to attend a court appearance.
And on Wednesday, they announced that Miller was arrested in Edmonton on November 3, following an investigation by Saskatchewan RCMP’s Warrant Enforcement and Suppression Team.
Miller, who is from the RM of Glenside, was charged with numerous drug trafficking and firearms offences in 2020.
