By QMI Agency
Patrick De Florimonte, whose profile has been featured on the Wanted by the Canada Border Services Agency website since June 4, 2012, for serious criminality, was arrested Thursday, the agency said.
He was arrested on Thursday in Toronto by the Immigration Task Force, a joint forces operations team made up of officers from the RCMP and the CBSA.
The agency said his criminal history includes convictions for trafficking in a controlled substance, possession for the purpose of trafficking and obstructing a peace officer in Canada.
"To date, Canadians have assisted in locating 30 individuals in Canada, while five individuals were located abroad," the CBSA said in a statement Friday.
"In addition, the CBSA has removed 20 of these individuals from Canada."
De Florimonte is the 30th individual located from "Wanted by the CBSA" list.
