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.
