Williams Lake RCMP arrested a local man wanted for weapons and other offences Thursday night.
Mounties received a tip that 21 year-old Lane Don Cooper was staying at a home in the 2nd Avenue North area.
Members of the Cariboo Crime Reduction Unit and other officers took Cooper into custody.
Police describe Cooper as a prolific offender. He was wanted on eight outstanding warrants, including possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, carrying a concealed weapon, and driving while disqualified.
Mounties say Cooper is the second so-called prolific offender arrested by Williams Lake RCMP this week.
The local detachment says it’s committed to targeting known offenders in the community.
