Jamieson Richard Glendinning was arrested in Sydney

A fugitive hiding in Australia was deported to Canada last week.

Jamieson Glendinning, a former Tsawwassen resident, is currently facing a number of charges including indecent assault, gross indecency, sexual assault, and failing to attend court.

The charges allege incidents involving multiple victims, both male and female, ranging in age from elementary to secondary school students that took place between 1969 and 1990.

In June, a warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to attend court in Surrey. He was found in Sydney, Australia last month.

On Friday (Nov. 9), Glendinning was escorted back to Vancouver by Australian authorities and turned over to Delta Police.

His next scheduled court hearing is Nov. 20 at Surrey Provincial Court.
