The Canadian motorcyclist wanted for riding 186 mph on a public highway has turned himself into police.

Randy George Scott, 25, turned himself in to Kelowna police Tuesday night, according to Canada's TimesColonist.com.

Investigators in the city of Saanich on Vancouver Island had been looking for Scott since early July, when he was charged with a criminal count of dangerous driving after several sworn witnesses fingered him as the man behind a YouTube video of a high-speed run down a busy stretch of the Trans-Canada highway that was posted to the site in April.

Scott’s mother, the legal owner of the motorcycle seen in the clip, has already been issued several moving violations amounting to $1,449 under statutes that hold the registered owner of a motor vehicle responsible if it is used in an illegal act.

Saanich Police Sgt. Dean Jantzen told FoxNews.com earlier this month that based on recent posts made to Scott's Facebook page indicated he was aware of the allegations against him. Police had even considered alerting U.S. border patrol in case Scott fled Canada.

A priority case in the otherwise low crime municipality of 115,000, Scott was listed on Saanich’s most-wanted list.

"Hopefully this is the beginning of the end to this particular incident," Jantzen said Wednesday.
