The arrest was a result of a tip from a civilian who recognized Rogerson while on a ferry crossing.

“This is a great example of the partnership between the RCMP, members of the media and in turn the public,” Assistant District Officer of Western Alberta District, Inspector Lyle Gelinas said. “This tip from a member of the public was instrumental in spotting this individual, notifying the police and in turn arresting him without incident.”

The man hunt for Rogerson began after he was accused of threatening a woman with a firearm and kidnapping her at a Fox Creek business location.
