The Ponoka RCMP have arrested a 36-year-old Kenora man who was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for sexual assault.

Daniel Sanche was sought on a Canada-wide warrant out of Dryden, for three counts of sexual assault, three counts of sexual interference and two counts of assault. Sanche was released on a Recognizance on January 9, 2017, with various conditions. One of which was to reside at a specific court identified location in Kenora. On May 25, 2017, he failed to return for his curfew and had not been seen since.

On June 5, 2017, the accused failed to attend Dryden Criminal Court as required, in regards to the sexual assault charges. After failing to appear in court, Sanche added a fail to comply charge onto his rap-sheet. The offender was believed to be heading to western Canada. The offender was known to frequent Calgary, as well as Kenora and Dryden.

On February 7, 2018, Ponoka RCMP members, with the assistance from the Ponoka General Investigations Unit and the Ponoka Integrated Traffic Unit descended on the Ponoka residence, obtained a warrant to enter the building, then located and arrested Sanche. He has been remanded in custody and will be transported back to Ontario to answer his charges.

The Ponoka RCMP are thanking the public for providing information that led to the arrest. Ponoka, Alberta is located roughly 1 hour south of Edmonton.
