Russell David Sapriken

The Castlegar RCMP Detachment is requesting the public’s assistance in locating Russell David Sapriken.

Sapriken has ten warrants for his arrest for driving while prohibited, breach of recognizance, theft under $5000, and failing to appear.  The charges stem from a number of incidents which occurred between October 2013 and November 2014 in the Trail and Castlegar areas.  Sapriken failed to attend court to answer to these matters and subsequently the warrants were issued.   It is believed that Sapriken is still in the community but actively avoiding police detection.

Sapriken is described as having short grey/brown hair, blue eyes,  5’10”, approximately 160 pounds.  He also has limited use of his right arm.

Russell David Sapriken has a criminal history and should not be approached if observed or encountered.  Any information regarding Sapriken’s whereabouts should be reported to the RCMP at 250-365-7721.
