Police located Beattie in a vehicle stop on 8 Street in Kamloops Oct. 30, according to a release. He was arrested on his outstanding warrants without incident.

Beattie was wanted on charges of possession of a weapon while prohibited, possession of ammunition while prohibited, theft under $5,000 and driving while suspended.
