Victoria police issue alert over federal fugitive

Police believe a federal fugitive could be in Victoria area

 

Police believe a federal fugitive could be in Greater Victoria.

Victoria police issued a warning that Dezmond White, 22, could be on the Island after failing to return to his Surrey halfway house late last week. He is the subject of a Canada-wide warrant for revocation of parole. White has connections to Victoria and police believe he may return to the area.

Police say White has an extensive history of violence and the public is urged to avoid confronting him.

He was in the middle of serving a federal sentence for break and enter, uttering threats, and firearms offences in Victoria and Saanich in 2010.

He is white, six-feet tall and about 180 pounds. White has blue eyes and short brown hair and has several tattoos including a dragon on his upper left arm, the word “Mollin” on his upper back, “side” on his left hand, and “west” on his right hand.

Anyone with information should contact Det. Shawn Robson at shawn.robson@vicpd.ca, or phone 911.
