On Tuesday, a $250,000 reward was announced for any information leading to the arrest of convicted murderer and prison escapee, Rabih Alkhalil.
Alkhalil also tops the Bolo (Be On The Lookout) Program’s updated 25 most wanted fugitives list. He escaped from the North Fraser Pre-Trial Centre in Port Coquitlam in July while awaiting trial for the 2012 murder of 36-year-old Sandip Duhre. According to Police, Alkhalil’s escape was assisted by two construction workers driving a white Econoline van
Speaking in a news conference, B.C. RCMP Deputy Commissioner Dwayne McDonald said,
“This isn’t the first time Alkhalil has evaded police. After orchestrating brazen murders in Vancouver and Toronto one decade ago, he fled to Greece where he was ultimately arrested and extradited to Canada,”
“He was helped when he fled to Greece one decade ago and he is being helped now.”
“We also know that $250,000 is a lot of money. For most people, $250,000 would be life changing. If you know where Rabih Alkhalil is, we don’t need your name, we don’t need your location, we just need to find him. Whether you’re in this province, this country or around the world, be on the look out.”
Bolo Program Director, Max Langlois said the reward for Alkhalil’s arrest, like all rewards for the other fugitives, will be provided without any conditions upon his arrest.
“And as always, you’ll get your money quickly. But don’t forget, all our rewards expire. The reward in the Alkhalil case is only available until May 1 2023,” he added.
