A man wanted by Mounties in the La Ronge area has been taken into custody.

Dylan Lewis was arrested after a brief foot pursuit by members of the La Ronge RCMP.

The 23-year-old was allegedly behind the wheel of a vehicle that was driving erratically and then fled from police on July 15th.

RCMP officers armed with carbines surrounded and searched an apartment block in La Ronge after Lewis’ vehicle was found outside the building — but didn’t find him.

Lewis, who police say has a history of violence, will now be making a court appearance on his outstanding charges.

The RCMP would like to acknowledge the public’s assistance in locating Lewis.

The Mounties say several tips were received from citizens regarding his whereabouts since the warrant for his arrest had been issued.
