Vancouver police re-arrest man missing from halfway house

A Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest
The Vancouver Police Department re-arrested Steven Frederickson, 57, who was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant after he failed to return to his halfway house on Feb. 8, 2024

The Vancouver Police Department announced Saturday (Feb. 10) they had re-arrested an offender deemed "violent" and who "poses a risk to public safety."

Steven Frederickson, 57, did not return to his Vancouver halfway house after signing out on February 8.

As a result, Frederickson was in violation of a court-ordered condition of his release and a Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest.

On Saturday, officers located Frederickson in Gastown, after responding to reports of a suspicious person near Columbia and Powell streets.

He was immediately taken into custody and returned to jail, according to the VPD.

This is the second time within a year that Frederickson has similarly not returned to his halfway house. In 2023, Frederickson signed out of his halfway house on April 19 and a Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest. The VPD apprehended Frederickson five days later.
