Cranbrook RCMP are looking for Michael Andres Salvador who has an outstanding warrant for his arrest in relation to a home invasion.

An arrest has been made by Cranbrook RCMP following a recent home invasion, however, another arrest warrant has been issued for a second suspect believed to be involved in the incident.

On Thursday, Cranbrook RCMP requested the public’s assistance in locating Michael Andres Salvador-Bejarano, a 24-year-old male believed to be in the Calgary area.

Salvador-Bejarano is described as 165 centimetres (5’5”) and 63 kilograms (139 lbs), with black hair and brown eyes.

If anyone has any information on Salvador-Bejarano, contact your local police services or CrimeStoppers. If seen, call 911 and do not approach or attempt to confront.

The arrest, and issue of a warrant, were made following a home invasion in the 200 and 500 block of 20th Ave. South where a 35-year-old male was shot on early hours of Feb. 4.

Initial reports indicated that four unknown males had forced their way into the home, assaulted several occupants of the house and shot one person.

The investigation led to Blairmore, Alberta, where two males arrived at the Crowsnest Pass Hospital the same day, one of which was suffering from a gunshot wound. One male was arrested after a search of a vehicle revealed evidence in connection with the shooting in Cranbrook, including two handguns.

Cranbrook RCMP members have been working with partner agencies in both B.C. and Alberta to determine all involved in the shooting incident, says S/Sgt. Hector Lee, the Cranbrook detachment commander.

“This is a clear example of the dedication your local RCMP members exhibit on a regular basis; in this particular matter, the members of the General Investigation Section and the Crime Reduction Unit,” said Lee. “These types of serious incidents are not typical in the Cranbrook area. You will be brought to justice and this community will not tolerate this type of activity.

“The Cranbrook RCMP wishes to thank the communities we serve for your patience and assistance in this matter.”

The Cranbrook RCMP asks anyone with information on the shooting incident or on Salvador-Bejarano to contact them at 250-489-3471 or CrimeStoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477). Information can also be relayed online with web or text-based tips with details at canadiancrimestoppers.org.
