RCMP issue arrest warrant for repeat offender Jason Beaudry

Countrywide warrant issued for arrest of high-risk offender Jason Beaudry, from Creston but believed to be in Kelowna area...

A countrywide warrant has been issued for the arrest of high-risk offender Jason Beaudry after he was supposed to check in with his parole officer on Monday but failed to do so.

He had previously violated conditions of his parole on Saturday.

“Unfortunately, his probation order wasn’t on the system, so we didn’t lay charges until this week,” said Creston RCMP Staff Sgt. Bob Gollan this morning.

It is believed that Beaudry has not yet returned to the Creston Valley, although he intended to, and is currently in the Kelowna aera.

The Ministry of Justice’s Corrections Branch notified the RCMP on Friday that Beaudry, who is described as aboriginal, five feet, 11 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds, intended to return to his Creston residence.

The Corrections Branch further described the 36-year-old 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 was 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.

Anyone spotting Beaudry should call the RCMP immediately at 250-428-9313.
