Police on hunt for suspected drug-trafficking senior

A senior citizen is wanted by Oliver/Osoyoos RCMP for allegedly trafficking cocaine.

A senior citizen is wanted by Oliver/Osoyoos RCMP for allegedly trafficking cocaine.

RCMP are asking the public for assistance in locating 67-year-old Delmar “Del” Lawrence Scott, an Oliver resident who is wanted on a provincewide unendorsed warrant for possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.

“A man of his age allegedly plying these wares is a little odd,” said Cpl. Dan Moskaluk. “Given his age and physical appearance, Mr. Scott could certainly pass for anyone’s elderly father or grandfather or the typical old guy next door.”

It is alleged that Scott is involved in street-level trafficking of cocaine in the Oliver/Osoyoos area. Moskaluk said investigators have reason to believe that Scott recently fled the South Okanagan area as a result of the warrant being issued and believe he is either in the Lower Mainland or in Alberta. Scott is described as Caucasian, five-foot-10, 170 pounds, with grey hair and blue eyes.

Anyone with information regarding Scott’s whereabouts are asked to contact the Penticton Regional RCMP General Investigative Section at 250-498-3422 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leave a tip online or text SOSTIPS and your message to CRIMES (374637).
