Repeat offender Jason Beaudry was released from jail last week

Frequent criminal offender Jason Beaudry has been released from jail and is the subject of a public notification by the Ministry of Justice.

Creston RCMP Staff Sgt. Bob Gollan said he was notified by the Corrections Branch on Friday that Beaudry, who is described as aboriginal, five feet, 11 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds, intends to return to his Creston residence.

“It is one of our top priorities to keep a close watch on high risk offenders and we will do so with Jason Beaudry,” Gollan said.

Routine checks in the past have led to several arrests without him having committed major crimes.

The Corrections Branch describes Beaudry, 36, as a high-risk violent sexual offender who has a lengthy and varied criminal history that includes violent and sexual offences. He has used weapons. As well, “he has offended in an opportunistic manner against males, females, strangers and acquaintances,” the notification says.

Beaudry’s release is accompanied by 13 court-ordered conditions, including orders not to possess, own or carry weapons, not to attend establishments where alcohol is the primary commodity for sale, to abstain completely from the possession, purchase or consumption of alcohol or drugs and to remain inside his residence between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

Gollan asks that anyone witnessing Beaudry breaching any of these conditions should call the RCMP immediately at 250-428-9313.
