Police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for a federal inmate, and say they believe he may be in Ottawa.
Immanuel Toussaint, 21, skipped parole last week after he was released from Collins Bay federal penitentiary in Kingston on Friday.
Toussaint was required to report to a halfway house in Toronto, but he did not turn up.
According to Det. Const. Brett Anderson of the Provincial Reapeat Offender Parole Enforcement Squad (ROPE), Toussaint is wanted for breaching his parole conditions and is known to have connections in the Ottawa area.
Police describe Toussaint as a black male, who stands 178 cm (5’10”), weighs 77 kg (170 lb), with black hair, brown eyes, and a scar on his left index finger.
Toussaint is serving a two-year, two-month sentence for drug possession, armed robbery, and being unlawfully at large.
ROPE is asking for the public’s assistance in locating Toussaint.
