A violent man wanted numerous times on outstanding warrants since July has now been caught. 

Prince George police say priority offender Colin Michaud Durrand was arrested yesterday morning (Sept. 28) when Mounties, alongside a police dog team and the North District RCMP's Emergency Response Team, converged on a Boyd Street home near First Avenue and Ospika Boulevard. 

Earlier this summer, he was wanted after the B.C. Prosecution Service approved numerous charges that included: 

  • Fail to comply with release order (six counts)
  • Fail to comply with probation (three counts)
  • Theft of a motor vehicle
  • Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000
  • Possession a firearm or ammunition while prohibited
  • Obstructing a peace officer

Durrand was arrested on Aug. 9 as part of a drug trafficking investigation.

It is unclear what happened between then and Sept. 23 when RCMP once again issued a plea for help in finding the 29-year-old, saying more arrest warrants had been issued to his name stemming from four separate incidents occurring since summer of 2019.

Durrand was wanted on the following charges approved by the BC Prosecution Service:

  • Possession of property obtained by crime over $5,000
  • Obstructing a peace officer
  • Fail to comply with probation
  • Fail to comply with release order 

When police found Durrand Monday morning, a woman was also found with him who surrendered to police without incident. 

Firearms were taken from the residence by authorities. 

Durrand was held in custody last night and is scheduled to appear in court today (Sept. 29), while Douglass says the woman was released without charges.
