VICTORIA -- RCMP say that a man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant may currently be in the Mid-Island area.
Comox Valley RCMP say that wanted man Peter Ludvigson may be living in, or frequently visiting, the Comox Valley community.
Police say the 45-year-old, who is originally from Nanaimo, is wanted for failing to comply with his release conditions.
Ludvigson previously served time in prison for property-related offenses before he was released into the Nanaimo community in December 2020.
One of his release conditions included that he live with a family member in Nanaimo. However, on Jan. 25, Nanaimo RCMP said that he was no longer living at the residence, and that his whereabouts were unknown.
A national warrant was then issued for his arrest.
Ludvigson is described as a white man who stands 5'11" and weighs approximately 190 pounds. He has red hair, brown eyes and a tattoo featuring a devil and flames on his right forearm, police said.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact Comox Valley RCMP at 250-338-1321, or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
