A man wanted for breaking his parole on sex offences in Greater Trail has been arrested after a Canada-wide warrant was issued Tuesday.

Trail RCMP were asked to keep on the lookout for former Fruitvale resident David Grant Mack when Vancouver Police said he failed to return to his Vancouver halfway house on Saturday night.

“The offence happened down there, there is a warrant issued for his arrest for unlawfully at large because his parole was revoked and we have no reason to believe at this time that he’s here, but we’re just making inquiries anyway to see if he did come this way or not,” said Trail RCMP Sgt. Rob Hawton, prior to Mack’s arrest in Vancouver.

Mack has been out on statutory release since July after serving a nearly three-year sentence for various offences committed in the region.

In September 2009, the then 32-year-old plead guilty in Rossland court to two counts of break and enter, assault causing bodily harm and sexual assault.
