It is believed he may still be in the Lower Mainland but investigators have now learned Teixeira has associates in Edmonton and Calgary and urge residents there to also be on the lookout for him.

Teixeira is described as Caucasian, five feet 10 inches and 161 pounds. He has brown eyes, brown hair, a snake tattoo on the left side of his chest and a sleeve tattoo on one arm.

Police say he is “extremely violent” and presents a risk to public safety.

Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911, and should not approach him.

Police say the hunt for Teixeria was linked to a heavy police presence in a South Surrey neighbourhood in early September, which police had initially described as a possible training exercise.
