A judge has ruled that a young man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant will be held in jail for six days in Corner Brook, until police can escort him back to Alberta. 

Gary Green, 23, was arrested in Corner Brook on Monday, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary said. 

Green was last seen in St. John's and has been described by police as "armed and dangerous."

The RNC said Green has a history of weapons possession and armed robberies, and they said he was wanted on a warrant issued by RCMP in Cold Lake, Alta.

Green will be held until RCMP officers are available to escort him to Alberta.
