Police arrested a man yesterday who went missing while on parole.

Michael Ralph Crowell, 43, was arrested at a residence in Sheet Harbour yesterday afternoon.

Crowell, who was on parole in relation to violent offences and was considered a high risk to reoffend, did not return to a halfway house in Halifax May 30.

Police issued a request to the public Friday to help them find Crowell.

“He should be considered armed and dangerous and members of the public should not approach this individual or try to take matters into their own hands,” the police said in the release.
