Victoria, BC – A joint project involving Patrol’s A-Watch and the Community Services Division (CSD) resulted in the arrests of 23 people wanted on outstanding warrants in Victoria and Esquimalt yesterday.

On Wednesday, January 27th, Patrol and CSD officers teamed up to focus on locating and arresting individuals wanted on warrants in Victoria and Esquimalt. The day-long project led to the arrests of 23 men and women who were wanted for a variety of offences, some of which included: mischief, driving while prohibited, breach of probation, break and enter, assault, and sexual interference involving a youth.

Two significant arrests marked the beginning of the warrant enforcement project, after a member of the public alerted officers to the location of Dean Reber and Jonathon Muzychka – federal offenders who were both wanted Canada-wide. Officers located and arrested Reber and Muzychka near Pandora Avenue and Vancouver Street without incident.

Officers are thanking the public for the information which led to these arrests, and we encourage our community to reach out to us with information about wanted persons.
