Manitoba fugitive arrested in Nelson

24-year-old Mason Buchner-Monkman was arrested at a Nelson residence on Mar. 27.

In a press release, the Nelson Police Department said they became aware of Buchner-Monkman’s presence in the area and his several outstanding warrants in Manitoba months ago.

He allegedly was the subject of numerous release conditions in the province and had fled to Nelson.

“Mr. Buchner-Monkman had come to the attention of the Nelson Police Department after receiving several complaints about him related to suspicious and concerning behaviors in our community. Officers were aware of his outstanding warrants in Manitoba and worked hard to get authorization to arrest him and return him,” said Nelson Police Sergeant Dan Markevich in a statement.

A combined effort between Nelson Police, the BC Prosecution Service, the Winnipeg Police Service, and the Manitoba Prosecution Service led to his arrest last week. He is being transported back to Manitoba to face his charges.

“It took a concerted effort on everyone’s part to get everything in order with all the steps necessary to achieve this goal. Mr. Buchner-Monkman is now on his way back to Manitoba,” added Sergeant Markevich.
