Barrie police located and arrested a man wanted in connection with the riot that erupted in London in March.
Police went to a south-end Barrie address looking for the 22-year-old and spotted him walking across the street. He was subsequently taken into custody.
He had been charged with two counts of assault police and participate in riot. He was released with conditions, one of them being to abide by a curfew. A police check earlier this month led to the conclusion he was not abiding by the curfew and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Arrested on the strength of the warrant, he was also charged with a second breach for not being in his residence. He was held pending a bail Hearing.
