A dangerous sex offender is back in custody after failing to return to his halfway house in Vancouver Monday (April 11).
Kenneth Kirton, 55, is on a 10-year supervision order, following a 1987 sexual assault conviction. The Vancouver Police Department has been monitoring him since March 2020.
On Monday evening, they noticed that Kirton didn’t return to his lodgings, prompting a Canada-wide warrant for his arrest.
By Thursday morning, VPD said its officers had found Kirton and arrested him. He remains in custody.
