For a second time in as many weeks, a warrant has been issued for a B.C. man with a record of crimes in the Tri-Cities.
On Tuesday (May 17), Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers included Waylon Vendramini in its latest "most wanted" list.
The 44-year-old man is sought for assault charges and his parole jurisdiction is in Chilliwack.
However, it's possible he could be anywhere in the Lower Mainland, including the Tri-Cities where he's been previously charged for offences under the Motor Vehicle Act (MVA) in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam.
Vendramini has made several appearances in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court, according to B.C. online services.
In April 1997, he was charged for two counts of drinking and driving after he was found operating a vehicle with more than 80 mg of alcohol in his body.
Five months later, he was charged again after failing to comply with the MVA for an incident in Coquitlam.
A year later, in September 1998, Vendramini was charged for an incident in Maple Ridge — one count of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and two counts of operating a motor vehicle while disqualified.
He's described as:
- 141 pounds
- Grey hair
- Blue eyes
Last week, a warrant was issued for Paul Ayers who was also charged for vehicle theft in Coquitlam in August 2021.
He was released on bail two days later and is currently wanted on possession of stolen property out of Chilliwack as well.
Ayers is described as:
- 179 pounds
- Brown hair
- Hazel eyes
Anyone with more information on the whereabouts of Vendramini or Ayers is urged to call 9-1-1 or their local police detachment, anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or go online to www.solvecrime.ca.
Crime Stoppers says a $5,000 reward could be granted if tips and details lead to an arrest and charge.
