A man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for breaching day parole was arrested Friday in Nanaimo.

Brent Stephen Martin failed to return to the New Hope Centre in Nanaimo July 27. He was living there for the past six months.

Martin served 3.5 years on a manslaughter conviction before being granted day parole earlier this year.

Police received information on Martin’s location Friday and arrested him at a house in Nanaimo without incident.

He was transferred to a federal prison Monday for a review of his breach.
