It is week #43 of our Fugitive Friday initiative wherein the Halton Regional Police Service reaches out to the public to help locate wanted persons and hold them accountable for their actions.
There are numerous people who continue to evade the police and the court system and instead live out in our communities while having a warrant for their arrest in place.
Every Friday, Halton Regional Police Service's Offender Management Unit shares information on a wanted person in hopes that the public can assist in locating the individual.
Fugitive Friday information is also posted on our website and disseminated via social media through Twitter and Facebook.
