Jason William Foster, 45, was released from prison last friday (17 November) after serving a part of a prison term for a public order offence.
Since his release, Foster failed to comply with the terms of his licence and a recall notice was issued last Thursday, 23 November.
Police issued an appeal to the public to help them in their search to find the 45 year-old as soon as possible.
At approximately 11AM this morning, police said they arrested the wanted man in the Bournemouth area.
A Dorset Police spokesperson said: “We would like to thank everyone who shared our appeal.”
