A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for Neil Elliott Collins who went unlawfully at large late last week.

On December 19, 2013, Neil Elliott Collins, 36, was scheduled to appear in the Kelowna Law Courts for sentencing on multiple charges of trafficking, possession of controlled substance, possession of a firearm and possession of property obtained by crime. Collins had been released earlier this month so he could get his affairs in order and was placed on electronic monitoring. He failed to attend Court, could not be contacted at his residence and may have tampered with his monitoring device. A Canada-wide warrant was issued for his arrest.

In an initial effort to get Collins into custody, officers from Kelowna and West Kelowna as well as other detachments throughout the Southeast District set up road blocks and searched for him at multiple locations. During the course of their investigation, police arrested an 18-year-old West Kelowna woman and a 62-year-old West Kelowna man for Obstruction.

Collins is prohibited from possessing weapons but is known to have access to firearms through associates and may be armed.

Police continue to actively search for Collins who is believed to be attempting to flee the country.

Anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of Neil Elliott Collins is asked to call your local police. If seen, do not approach him, rather call 911 immediately. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
