Aside from the warrants, police say Wildman is a person of interest in several ongoing investigations where short-term rental properties were damaged and items were stolen.
Police say he is also a person of interest in several rental fraud investigations where it's alleged that he rents short-term accommodations, posts them online posing as the owner and then obtains damage deposits from would-be renters.
Wildman is believed to be using multiple aliases, according to police, including:
- Hayden Davidon
- Brandon Lee
- David Howden
- Thomas Sommerville
- James Chu
- Chris Terrence
- James Hauden
- Christopher Townsend
- Bruno Deckland
- Eugene Tolbert

Anyone renting their short-term unit is advised to meet the renter first and ensure valuables are secured.
