The Record on April 17, 2012 released the following:
“Waterloo Regional Police have arrested an American fugitive who has been wanted by U.S. authorities since 2000.
Glen Allan Ward, 47, was arrested without incident April 5 at a banking machine in Kitchener. He was arrested under the Extradition Act and is scheduled to be in court today, police said in a news release.
Ward is wanted by American law enforcement authorities in Los Angeles and San Francisco for bankruptcy fraud in connection with an investigation that dates back 12 years.
The FBI received a Canada-wide warrant under the Extradition Act after learning the man had fled to Canada after being released on bail in Los Angeles in 2000.
FBI officials looked for Ward in British Columbia, and Quebec and more recently in southern Ontario.
In March, Waterloo Regional Police were told Ward might be in the region.
Police said Ward is believed to have used numerous aliases including Sheldon Cross, John Wells, Sean Hamilton, Jeremy Mitchell, John Mitchell, Brandon Grant, Brandon Cartwright, Brandon Cohen, Brandon Michaels, Brandon Mercer, Jacob Becker, Jacob Alexander and Matthew Becker.”
