Surrey: Two more individuals have been transported out of province by the BC Fugitive Return Program, to be held accountable for outstanding warrants in Manitoba.

Jorg Rautenburg was arrested by Surrey RCMP on outstanding warrants from Brandon, Manitoba. Rautenburg was identified as a candidate for BCFRP by Surrey RCMP, as part of Surrey’s High Risk Location initiative that targets locations posing the highest risk to public safety. He was charged Breach of Recognizance, Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle with Over 80 mgs of Alcohol, Fail to Comply with a Probation Order x3, Fail to Comply with a Recognizance x3 and Manitoba Highway Traffic Act and Liquor Control Act offences.

Second person, Jason James Sinclair was arrested by Surrey RCMP on warrants from Winnipeg, Manitoba. His warrants were for Assault Causing Bodily Harm, Fail to Comply with a Promise to Appear and Theft Under.

Both were transported back to Manitoba. The returns were funded and facilitated by the B.C. Fugitive Return Program (BCFRP), in cooperation with the Surrey RCMP, Brandon Police Service and Manitoba Integrated Warrant Apprehension Unit. The escorts were carried out by B.C. Sheriff Services, a key partner of the BCFRP. Since September 2011, the B.C. Provincial Fugitive Return Program has facilitated the return of 62 individuals from various regions in B.C. wanted by other provinces across Canada.
