A man last seen in Osoyoos is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant by RCMP for deportation.

Mounties said Luis Fernando Partida Ramirez, also known as Fernando Chaidez, has been charged by Penticton RCMP with possession of drugs for trafficking and by Keremeos RCMP for a breach. The 38-year-old man from Mexico was last residing in the Boundary Motel in Osoyoos but moved on Sept.1 without advising the Canadian Border Services Agency. He then failed to attend his immigration hearing on Sept. 8.

Chaidez was convicted in May of 2005 in Washington State for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking.

The wanted man is described by RCMP as being 5'9, 174 pounds with black hair and blue eyes. Anyone with information on this man are asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or www.southokanagancrimestoppers.ca for other anonymous ways of passing information on.
