    Gotcha! German fugitive arrested at Kelowna airport
    B.C. RCMP media release

    The RCMP Federal Drug Section in Kelowna assisted Hamburg Police Service by arresting 31-year-old Benjamin Rudt, wanted in Germany for allegedly drug trafficking of approximately 100 kilograms of marihuana and approximately 58 kilograms of hashish.

    On Sunday, February 21, 2010 RCMP officers from the South-East District Drug Section arrested Benjamin Rudt at the Kelowna Airport where he was picking up his girlfriend who was arriving from Germany. Mr. Rudt is wanted in Germany on eight counts in relation to trafficking approximately 100 kilograms of marihuana and approximately 58 kilograms of hashish between November 2005 and February 2006, at which time he fled before his arrest. A provisional warrant was obtained by RCMP officers through German authorities and the Department of Justice – International Assistance Group, to successfully arrest Benjamin Rudt.

    Mr. Rudt appeared in Kelowna Supreme Court on February 22, 2010 where he was remanded and transferred to Vancouver for an extradition hearing that will occur on Wednesday February 24 at 2 p.m. He remains in custody.

    “This is an excellent example of how the RCMP works closely with other policing agencies. The international policing community has no borders. Together, with the assistance of Hamburg Police Service, we were able to track and arrest an international criminal so he can be brought to justice,” said Sergeant Rob Vermeulen, RCMP Media Relations Officer.
