North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP have arrested a man in connection with more than 40 charges.
The Street Crime Unit closed in on the man in mid-January, knowing he had numerous warrants and was under a court-ordered condition not to be on Vancouver Island. Such conditions can be given for a number of reasons, sometimes as part of bail or probation.
The man was located in Duncan in a stolen vehicle with numerous stolen items, including guitars and jewelry.
Tyler Elrix, 37, has been remanded in custody on 37 previous charges, as well as new charges that include theft over $5,000 and possession of stolen property.
His next court appearance is set for Feb. 2.
