Victoria, BC – VicPD officers are asking for your assistance to locate Riga Godron, who is wanted on a British Columbia-wide warrant.
Riga Godron is described as a 44-year-old Caucasian woman, standing five feet tall with a medium build, weighing approximately 161 pounds. She has black hair and green eyes. A photograph of Riga Godron is below.
Riga Godron faces sworn charges of obstructing a police officer, flight from police and driving without due care and attention after a July 1, 2022 incident in which officers had to leap out of the way of a vehicle that refused to stop. The vehicle fled the scene and was boxed in by responding officers in the 600-block of Pandora Avenue, a short distance from where Canada Day celebrations were occurring. The driver was pulled from the vehicle by officers and arrested.
She was subsequently the subject of a wanted person alert and was arrested after failing to appear in court.
The charges have not been proven in court. Riga Godron is considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
If you see Riga Godron, do not approach her, and call 911. If you have information about where Riga Godron may be, please call our Report Desk and (250) 995-7654, extension 1, or your local police. To report what you know anonymously, please call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
