A south Okanagan prolific offender, who was the subject of a massive manhunt this past summer, has filed a civil claim against a warden and a correctional supervisor at the Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre.
Ronald Teneycke waived his right to a bail hearing shortly after he was arrested and has been at the Kamloops jail for the past five months.
The 53-year-old says that he needed emergency surgery on two separate occasions.
Teneycke claims one of the surgeries was needed because he suffered blunt force trauma to his stomach area but he does not specify exactly how the injury allegedly happened.
He’s seeking $25,000 in compensation. The warden and correctional supervisor named in the lawsuit have replied. Evan Vike and Pageau deny the allegations made by Teneycke. They are asking for the lawsuit to be dropped.
