WANTED man Bret Lindsay Capper was arrested last night in Baldivis.

Police attended the intersection of Fifty Road and Mandurah Road at about 9.30pm last night after a reported sighting of Capper.

Officers from the Regional Operations Group, Kwinana Police and the Dig Squad attended, with support from the Police Airwing.

Police dog Rumble was deployed and tracked a scent into nearby bushland, and upon being approached, Capper surrendered and was arrested without incident.

The 42-year-old, who had managed to evade police for most of last week and was linked with a number of robberies, was charged with 18 offences, including aggravated assault occasioning bodily harm, stealing a motor vehicle, stealing, armed robbery, attempted armed robbery, burglary and reckless driving.

He will appear in Perth Magistrates Court later today.
