The search for a man wanted in connection with a Saanich robbery ended with an arrest in Courtenay Thursday.
According to Saanich police, Michael Godolphin, 37, was arrested just after 2:30 p.m. by Comox Valley RCMP.
Police started looking for Godolphin on Tuesday after he allegedly pulled a gun on a loss prevention officer outside of a London Drugs at the Saanich Centre. Saanich police said he was considered armed and dangerous.
Godolphin then allegedly went to Lochside Regional Trail. Police said he allegedly robbed a cyclist of their black electric bike. Police identified Godolphin by using video surveillance footage.
On Wednesday, there was a manhunt on the South Island for Godolphin. He was wanted on a charge of robbery with a firearm, as well as warrants for other offences.
Nanaimo RCMP confirmed that they received at least two reports on Wednesday that Godolphin was in Nanaimo and had been seen on a black electric bike. They followed up on the reports but were not able to locate him.
Saanich police said Godolphin was arrested without incident and will appear in court on Friday. He is facing a number of criminal code offence allegations that stem from the robbery. He is also facing other criminal code offences that allegedly occurred in Courtenay on Thursday.
