UPDATE: Jonathan Christopher Swiftwolfe has been arrested.
North Battleford RCMP and The Moosomin First Nation Chief and Council say they are looking for Jonathan Christopher Swiftwolfe, who is wanted on several charges.
Swiftwolfe, who is 26 years old and from the Moosomin First Nation, has been evading police since being charged with breaching his probation conditions on April 18, 2020. North Battleford RCMP say they are “concerned for the safety of the residents of Moosomin First Nation while Jonathan Swiftwolfe remains at large,” and add that they are working to arrest him as soon as possible.
Jonathan Swiftwolfe is described as around 5’8″ and 180 pounds, with short black hair and brown eyes. He has several identifying tattoos as well, including the word “Westside” over his eye “1994” on his cheek and some longer words on his jaw and neck.
He is known to frequent both the Moosomin First Nation and North Battleford areas. Swiftwolfe is believed to be armed and dangerous, and anyone who sees him or knows where he is is told not to approach him. Instead, call 911, a local police detachment or CrimeStoppers to report it.
In total, Swiftwolfe is charged with several crimes, including:
- Seven counts of failure to comply with a probation order
- Possession of a weapon contrary to a probation order and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose
- Two counts of flight from police
