Most of us would like to be “wanted” on Valentine’s Day – but not like this.
From the files at Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers, here are the top 10 “most wanted” BC criminals and suspects on the lam this Valentine’s Day. They could be far away, or might be in the neighbourhood.
(See the full list attached of Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers’ 10 Least Wanted Valentines. If you have any information regarding the individuals listed, please contact Crime Stoppers anonymously. Your anonymity is guaranteed by the Supreme Court of Canada. You’ll never be questioned or called to testify.)
Tipsters offering information to Crime Stoppers that leads to the arrest of any wanted criminal can lead to a reward of up to $5,000. For three of these most wanted, Crime Stoppers has also partnered with the national BOLO Program to announce extra-large incentives:
“If every British Columbian were on the lookout for these 10 men, we’d have about five million extra pairs of eyes to add to those of the police,” says Linda Annis, Executive Director of Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers. “Crime Stoppers really works in finding criminals like these. Last year we received more than 5,100 anonymous crime tips in Metro Vancouver alone leading to 87 arrests, including five gang members and the recovery of $10 million worth of stolen property and illegal drugs.”
