Police have charged a Salmon Arm, B.C. man in connection with last year's Stanley Cup riots in Vancouver.

Police say the Crown approved charges of participating in a riot, mischief and arson against Andrew Comber, 38.

The suspect was arrested in Salmon Arm on Saturday.

Police allege Comber took a stuffed bear, set it on fire and threw it on top of an overturned truck.

Police also say Comber was "very active and noticeable" during the evening and taunted police.

A police news release says Comber is also wanted in Alberta for numerous charges stemming from a 2004 incident following a Calgary Flames hockey game.

The string of Alberta charges Comber is accused of include assaulting a peace officer, obstructing a peace officer and resisting arrest.

It's not known when Comber will appear in court to answer the allegations against him.

There have been dozens of criminal charges laid since the June 15, 2011 riot, which cost businesses millions of dollars in damage.
