A convicted sex offender who escaped custody has been arrested in Surrey.

Ronald Currie Miljure, the subject of a public alert on May 31, was at large after he walked away from his handlers on the way to a detention facility, said a Burnaby RCMP press release.

Miljure, 35, was sentenced to six years in prison for sexually assaulting three prostitutes, has serious substance abuse issues and is considered a person of interest for the Vancouver Police Department high risk offender unit.

After he stole a car in Burnaby, police investigators tracked him down to a Surrey home where he was arrested on the evening of June 6 without incident.

Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Melissa Brown of the Prolific Offender Suppression Team gave kudos to her investigators in the release.

“We had great cooperation with the local police agencies and the public during the search for this man. We’re just happy that he’s off the streets and back in custody.”
