Tips from the public led to the arrests of two men wanted on Canada-wide warrants Wednesday morning, according to Victoria police.
Around 7:30 a.m., officers received a tip that led them to the area near the intersection of Pandora Avenue and Vancouver Street. There, police located and arrested Dean Reber, 60, and Jonathan Muzychka, 43, both subjects of Canada-wide warrants.
Reber, a federal offender serving a nearly five-year sentence for multiple robbery convictions, had failed to return to a community residential facility Tuesday morning.
Muzychka is also a federal offender, serving a nearly 18-year sentence for several offences including manslaughter, theft under $5,000, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, escape from lawful custody and robbery. He also failed to return to a community residential facility Tuesday morning.
Police thank those who helped them arrest the wanted individuals.
