A prolific offender living in the South Okanagan still hasn’t shown up for his jail sentence, and the police are asking for assistance locating the man who is unlawfully at large.
Ronald Arthur Teneycke pleaded guilty to making or possessing explosives on April 9, and after becoming ill and spending time in the hospital was set to re-commence his 90-day, intermittent (weekend) jail sentence on June 26.
Teneycke failed to report and has not yet been located by police.
Teneycke is a caucasian male, 6 feet, 1 inch tall and 170 lbs, with long brown hair usually worn in a ponytail and hazel eyes.
He is believed to be driving a 1990 two-tone red and grey extended cab GMC 1/4 ton truck that could be equipped with a box rack on it.
Police are asking the public not to approach Teneycke and to call police immediately if he is spotted.
“Obviously he has support networks and hopefully they also see that he should turn himself in and move forward on these things,” Staff Sgt. Kurt Lozinski told the Western News.
Teneycke has three outstanding warrants for failure to comply with a probation order.
