Sex offender found in K-Town

A high-risk sex offender was arrested in Kelowna Thursday.

Darren Wheatley, 44, was wanted on a Canada wide warrant issued on March 27.

The warrant was issued after Wheatley failed to return to a halfway house in New Westminster the day before.

Wheatley is a two-time federal offender who is currently serving a 10-year sentence for two counts of sexual assault, sexual assault causing bodily harm and two counts of overcoming resistance by choking.

The charges stemmed from three separate attacks on adult women in Ontario.

No details of the arrest were released
