OTTAWA - A killer and repeat armed robber on the lam for nearly two weeks after breaching parole conditions was nabbed in Ottawa on Monday.

Andre Mayer, 56, was most recently jailed six years for armed robbery, pointing a firearm, and disguise with intent.

In1983, Mayer was sentenced to 10 years in prison after a botched heist during which a St. Laurent pizza parlour owner was shot in his own restaurant.

Mayer had been released on parole on May 27, and was supposed to be staying at a specific address in Ottawa. But he vanished, becoming a fugitive on June 26.

Police caught up with him in Ottawa in Monday.
