Coquitlam’s most wanted on Mounties’ website
Coquitlam RCMP has launched an online initiative that identifies people who are wanted by local Mounties in order to generate tips from the public.
The Wanted Project posts names and pictures of suspects with outstanding warrants and has a phone number people can call to provide information about those individuals’ whereabouts, activities and associations.
But police warn anyone who comes into contact with a person whose photo is posted on the Wanted Project website should not attempt to approach or contact the suspect.
“[Readers] should not, under any circumstances, try to apprehend the wanted or put themselves at any risk at all,” Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung wrote in an email. “The safest thing to do is call the police from a safe place and let us deal with them.”
Currently, the police have posted the names of four people they are seeking:
• Vasile Maier is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for fraud, possession of an instrument used for fraudulent purposes and forgery. He is a 34-year-old Caucasian, 5’7”, 175 lb. with brown eyes and a shaved head.
• Emerson Reyes is wanted for assault and forcible confinement, and is described as a 37-year-old Hispanic man, 5’7” tall, weighing 170 lb. He has black hair and brown eyes.
• Marc Koehler is wanted for personation with intent and is described as a 39-year-old Caucasian man with blonde hair and green eyes who is 5’9” tall and weighs 201 lb.
• Randy Almeida-Martinez is wanted for assault and failure to appear. He is a 21-year-old Hispanic man who is 5’9” tall and weighs 177 lb. He has green eyes and brown hair.
