The search for a wanted man who allegedly threatened police officers in Milnsbridge 10 days ago is over.
Sheldon Coore, 37, went on the run after officers turned up at his home in Rufford Road on the evening of Friday, May 20, with the intention of arresting him for allegedly infringing the terms of his prison licence.
Police said he had threatened officers and left the scene armed with a knife.
They added that he was potentially dangerous.
While at large Mr Coore phoned the Examiner several times to give his side of the story and denied threatening officers.
He said he had served a long stretch in prison for robbery and had been freed on licence in January last year.
He said he had “no intention of going back to prison or giving himself up," but he was arrested in Sheepridge on Sunday night.
Mr Coore was arrested apparently without incident.
Throughout the past week officers had been searching for the fugitive.
They sealed off a house in Fernside Avenue, Almondbury , after reports he had been seen there.
Det Insp Ian Mottershaw of Kirklees CID said: “At the moment he is in custody at Huddersfield Police Station.
“The allegations that he threatened officers are being investigated and these enquiries are ongoing.”
