It turned out a confrontational customer at a Maple Ridge business was wanted by police.

Ridge Meadows RCMP arrested a man who was wanted on an outstanding warrant out of Vancouver. On Monday at around 2 p.m., police were responding to a call in the 20700 block area of Lougheed Highway regarding a belligerent man inside a local business.

The man had left the premises prior to police attendance, however police were able to identify a suspect. The investigation further revealed the suspect was wanted on a warrant for breach of probation. Police located the man a short distance away and, after a brief scuffle, the man was arrested.
