The man sought in connection with the abduction of his 7-year-old daughter has been arrested by RCMP.
Jesse Bennett was picked up by police during a traffic stop in Shawnigan Lake last week.
An arrest warrant for Abduction in Contravention of a Custody Order had been issued after Bennett didn’t return Violet to her mother in accordance with a court order.
Violet Bennett and her father were reported missing on January 23rd.
She was dropped off unharmed in mid-April at the North Cowichan-Duncan RCMP detachment.
