The RCMP apprehended Andrew Robert Hardenstine in the Summerland area Sunday.
Hardenstine was found inside a vehicle at about 3 p.m. says Corporal Dan Moskaluk. Two other individuals fled the vehicle when police approached but no pursuit was given. Moskaluk says the priority was apprehending Hardenstine.
It is not known if Hardenstine was driving.
Hardenstine, 33, was a federal parolee wanted on a Canada-wide warrant since January 2013.
Hardenstine left a halfway house in Kamloops on Jan. 14 and did not return.
Hardenstine has multiple prior convictions including possession of property obtained by crime, theft under $5,000, theft over $5,000, robbery and break and enter—all stemming from incidents in Penticton. He was also found guilty of possession of cocaine, crystal meth, ecstasy and marijuana during a 2010 vehicle stop in Surrey.
