On November 15th, 2010 members of the New Westminster Police Service Patrol Division encountered a male as a result of a fraud investigation. A check of the male found that he had a lengthy criminal history including robberies, property crime and violence. It was also learned that he was wanted by the Toronto Police Service for breach of a one year conditional sentence order after being found guilty of multiple counts of assault and uttering threats.
In order to stay out of jail he had promised the court in Ontario that he would obey all conditions however; he promptly fled that jurisdiction and came to British Columbia. After an investigation by the Criminal Intelligence Unit, 33 year old Robert Joseph FRASER was arrested by the same Patrol Division members at his residence. FRASER was transported to Pearson Airport under escort, taken into custody by the Toronto Police and, transported to jail where he will complete his sentence and face other, unrelated charges.
