FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A 32-year-old wanted in five B.C. communities, including Fort St. John, was arrested by Surrey RCMP during a traffic stop last week.

Zachary Wagner was arrested on February 16th by Surrey RCMP Gang Enforcement Team around 10 p.m. in the 14000-block of 102 Avenue.

Upon further investigation, the officers found that Wagner had active arrest warrants out of Prince Rupert, Terrace, Sunshine Coast, Fort St John and Whitehorse.

Wagner was wanted for various offences, including multiple weapons-related charges.

Wagner is facing two charges for breach of release order in FSJ.

“Surrey RCMP Gang Enforcement Team has been working relentlessly to target high-risk offenders in our community,” said Sgt. John Murray of the gang enforcement team on Tuesday.

“They use many different proactive approaches, including increased vehicle interdictions to target offenders. Regardless of where offenders are from or where they committed criminal offences, the goal is to diminish their opportunity to commit crimes in Surrey.”

Wagner remains in custody until his next court appearance.
