TORONTO, Jan. 24 /CNW/ - Police and Immigration Officers scored a hat
trick this week when they attempted to execute an arrest warrant. While
searching for a fugitive, the Immigration Task Force not only located their
man, but two other fugitives as well.
The Immigration Task Force identified a possible residence for a fugitive
in Cambridge Ontario. At that residence on Saturday January 19, they located
and identified another fugitive who had been on the run since 2003.
Rollest SPENCER, aged 41, a citizen of Trinidad, was arrested on a
Canada-wide immigration warrant.
The investigation continued and on Monday January 21, a male similar in
appearance to the fugitive was observed driving away from a residence in
Toronto. This person was approached by officers who were able to confirm he
was not their sought after fugitive, but again, this person was also wanted.
Bright OSAIGBOVO, aged 39, a citizen of Nigeria, was arrested for being
unlawfully in Canada, the use of fraudulent identification, and obstruction.
An hour later members of the Immigration Task Force finally located and
arrested their original fugitive outside of a residence in the Keele and Finch
area of Toronto.
Kenriff Wilbert SIMON, aged 42, a citizen of St. Vincent, was arrested on
a Canada-wide immigration warrant as well as outstanding criminal warrants
from Toronto Police Service.
"This is a case of good old fashioned, heads up investigation," stated
RCMP Inspector Glenn Hanna, "Any time we can remove a fugitive from the street
is good for the community. Three for one is even better."
The Immigration Task Force is composed of members from the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police, Canada Border Service Agency and Provincial ROPE members from
the Ontario Provincial Police and Toronto Police Service.
