Man wanted Canada-wide ran out of luck

Alaskan Jeremy Dillon Estes captured in 100 Mile House

Alaska resident Jeremy Dillon Estes, 31, who was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for immigration offences, was spotted by 100 Mile House RCMP near the entrance to Centennial Park around 7:20 p.m. on July 15.

When members attempted to arrest him, he fled on foot toward the downtown area and then to the airport.

Estes managed to jump a number of fences and evade immediate arrest; however, several bystanders assisted police in locating his last point of travel.

He attempted to run into a wooded area near First Street, but was arrested by police without further incident.

Estes entered Canada illegally in May 2014.

In June, Hope RCMP attempted to arrest him, but he successfully evaded arrest.

On July 12, Estes fled from a routine roadside vehicle check near Green Lake around 8:30 p.m., says Sgt. Darrell Robinson of the Clinton RCMP.

A passenger in the vehicle with Estes was questioned and released without charges.

Based on that contact with Clinton RCMP, it was believed Estes could possibly be in the 100 Mile House area, so local RCMP members were watching for him.

He is also wanted in the United States for violating terms of his probation.
