A 21-year-old Mission man is back in police custody after he breached his bail conditions more than a month ago.

Clayton Pierce was located in the area of Grebe Crescent and Brant Avenue and taken into police custody on Nov. 21.

According to Mission RCMP Sgt. Shaun Wright, Pierce attempted to flee, and at the time of his arrest, he was wanted on three outstanding arrest warrants for 11 charges.

Pierce, whom police describe as a prolific violent offender, was first arrested this past August and charged with numerous crimes, including a rash of dirt bike thefts and disturbances in the community. He was also charged with break and enter, aggravated assault and wearing a mask while committing an offence this past summer.

“Pierce had been released on $2,000 bail after he was charged in a home invasion during which the victim was savagely beaten,” said Wright. “A short time after being arrested, Pierce violates his bail conditions and left the residence in Abbotsford he was to be living at.”
