Police say 33-year-old Preston Munroe Deveny is wanted for assault and five counts of failing to comply with probation stemming from an incident in Fort St. James in 2015.

He is also wanted for failing to comply with probation following an investigation in Prince George last year and for uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm in Alberta.

“Investigators believe that Deveny is aware of the warrants and is deliberately avoiding apprehension,” says Prince George RCMP Cpl. Craig Douglass. “Deveny has previously resided in Prince George, Fort St. James and Takla Landing areas. He also has known associates in the Vanderhoof area.”

Deveny is described as:

  • Caucasian male
  • Six feet
  • 203 pounds
  • Brown hair
  • Green eyes

Douglass says Deveny should be considered violent and should not be approached. If you locate him call the Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300 or the Fort St. James RCMP at 250-996-8269.

If you’d like to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
