Wanted man, James ROGERSON apprehended in British Columbia

RCMP - Crest-insigneFox Creek, Alberta – In the late evening of August 6, 2014, James ROGERSON was arrested without incident by the Nanaimo RCMP when he disembarked from a BC Ferry going from Vancouver to Nanaimo, British Columbia. This arrest was as a result of a tip from a civilian who recognized ROGERSON while on the ferry crossing.

A Canada Wide Warrant for the apprehension of James ROGERSON, 49 -year-old man of BC, had been issued in relations to a kidnapping case which occurred on August 4, 2014 in Fox Creek, Alberta.

“This is an great example of the partnership between the RCMP, members of the media and in turn the public” says Inspector Lyle Gelinas, Assistant District Officer of Western Alberta District. “This tip from a member of the public was instrumental in spotting this individual, notifying the police and in turn arresting him without incident.”

ROGERSON has yet to speak to bail and further information about his court appearance will be provided at a later time.

The Alberta RCMP would like to thank the all involved in this matter.
