A Welland man wanted by the Niagara Police for a November 20 incident was finally found in Killaloe, Ontario yesterday (December 15) after a Canada Wide Parole Warrant was put out for his arrest.

Back in November, Niagara Police responded to a complaint of a threat and were able to identify the suspect as Josh Nuziato 23, of Welland.

When they saw him later on that day driving around the city, they stopped him, only to have him take off “at a high rate of speed.” They briefly chased him before calling it off,  worried about public safety, given the erratic way Nuziato was driving.

Since that day, he has been at large with a warrant issued for his arrest under charges of uttering threats, dangerous driving and fleeing the police.

Police say he is being held in custody and will be returned to Niagara at a later date.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Niagara Regional Police Service at 905-688-4111, ext. 1002200.
