The Nanaimo RCMP is asking for the public’s help in locating 34-year-old Chas Trevor Thomas, wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for breach of parole, and police think he may be somewhere between Nanaimo and Duncan.
Thomas did not return to the Salvation Army shelter on April 22, as per his parole conditions.
Prior to being paroled, Thomas was serving a 48-month sentence for robbery originating out of Nanaimo, according to a press release from the RCMP.
“He has numerous family and friends in the Nanaimo and Duncan area and he is believed to be residing somewhere between the two places,” said Const. Gary O’Brien.
Thomas is a First Nations male who is 5-foot-10 and 220 pounds with short black hair and brown eyes. He has a tattoo of “Troy” on his left forearm, “Alex” on his right forearm, “GT” on his left wrist and a skull, dragon and flames on his left upper arm.
Police say Thomas has an extensive criminal background, including convictions of robbery with a weapon, kidnapping and forcible confinement.
Anyone who knows about Thomas’s whereabouts is asked to call 911 immediately or contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 or online.
