Canadian police on bike patrol nab one of America's most wanted

Montreal police

Canadian police on bicycles have nabbed one of America's most wanted criminals in a chance encounter during a routine patrol of Montreal streets.

Two cycling police officers were patrolling a Montreal bike path last Wednesday when they spotted two men they suspected of having drugs, police say.

He tried to flee, a statement said, but officers gave chase and he was caught.

Katay-Khaophone Sychanta, 35, is a Laotian-born alleged drug smuggler who is on the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement list of its 10 most wanted criminals.

The officers had suspected Sychanta and a second man of possessing drugs. The officers suspected the card was fake and took him into custody for further questioning.

Sychanta was also subject to a Canada-wide arrest warrant and was wanted by the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) for several Criminal Code offenses related to drug trafficking.

It said that Sychantha was first indicted in MI in 2005 for conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance.

A $25,000 reward was being offered by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for information that led to his arrest.

He was fingerprinted at a police station in the St-Laurent area.

Sychanta appeared at court last week to face charges of possession of drugs, obstructing police work and using counterfeit documents.

Sychanta, who was considered armed and unsafe, had also made threats against law enforcement officials, per the ICE.

It is expected he will be handed over to Ontario police and also faces possible extradition to the United States, it added.

It says he evaded capture and continued to supervise a drug-smuggling organization based near Windsor, Ont.
