The RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is offering a large reward for one of the country’s most wanted criminals.

Brandon Teixeira is wanted in connection with the 2017 murder of 28-year-old Nicholas Khabra.

Police are now offering a reward of $55,000 for information leading to Teixeira’s arrest. The reward will only be available for six months, IHIT said.

Officers say they are not seeking more witnesses or evidence, they are strictly looking to arrest Teixeira as the case is ready to go to trial.

IHIT is also teaming up with the Bolo Program, an initiative that uses social media to remind the public of suspects still at large.

Last September, police thought Teixeira was likely still in the Metro Vancouver area, but also said he could have travelled to Edmonton or Calgary because he has associates in those cities.

Police have described him as an extremely violent man who poses a danger to the safety of the community.

Anyone with information on Teixeira is asked to contact IHIT at 1-877-551-4448. Those who wish to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
