Warrant issued for Teneycke

A prolific offender living in the South Okanagan now has a warrant out for his arrest.

Ronald Arthur Teneycke is back in jail after having his intermittently (weekends only) sentence suspended due to health reasons.

A prolific offender living in the South Okanagan now has a warrant out for his arrest after not showing up for his weekends-only jail sentence for two weeks in a row.

“In his own best interest, if he ever does hear about this or read it somewhere ,is to perhaps find his way into the nearest detachment, turn himself in and get back on track,” said Staff Sgt. Kurt Lozinski.

He said police have searched for Teneycke in “common sense areas” to no avail.

Teneycke pleaded guilty to making or possessing explosives and possessing a weapon contrary to a court order and was sentenced to 90 days in jail intermittently on weekends on April 9. However, a court order was made to change the start date of that sentence due to Teneycke being admitted to the hospital. After trying multiple times to prove he was not healthy enough for his jail sentence after being released from the hospital, Judge Greg Koturbash found there was no evidence from his doctor that Teneycke was unfit to serve the sentence, but Teneycke never showed up.

“Obviously he has support networks and hopefully they also see that he should turn himself in and move forward on these things,” Lozinski said.

Lozinski wouldn’t  comment on whether Teneycke is a danger to the public.
