Manhunt ends in Summerland

UPDATE 8:55 p.m. Feb. 3:

The Penticton RCMP arrested Andrew Robert Hardenstine without incident in the Summerland area Sunday evening. 

Hardenstine is a 33-year-old Federal Parolee wanted on a Canada-wide warrant since January 2013.

Uniformed, plain-clothes, K9 and heavily-armed, black-clad Emergency Task Force members encircled a property Sunday afternoon shortly after 3 PM on Giant's Head Rd. in Summerland.

They began stopping and searching vehicles that were passing by on the residential road.

A member of the RCMP K9 Unit was also spotted searching along the walking-path that runs beside the road.

One local resident, who wishes to remain anonymous, says that she opened her front door and "there were police everywhere."

She was told that an armed fugitive was in the area and that they should go back inside immediately.

They also told her to be on the lookout for a lone male wearing a white shirt.

"They grid-searched our property and searched our motorhome," said the neighbor.  "When I drove by at 7:30 there was still an undercover truck parked at the end of the road."
