High-risk sex offender Richard Thomas Galt is back in custody after being located in Abbotsford, B.C., Thursday morning police said.

A Canada-wide warrant was issued on May 12 for Galt, 46, after he failed to return to his halfway house in Vancouver on Monday night.

Galt has four prior convictions for sexual assault against women and children, and is considered a high risk to re-offend.

He had been on statutory release after being sentenced for uttering threats, breaking and entering, and failing to comply with his probation order.
