In the name of community safety, and in an unprecedented step, Nanaimo RCMP are escorting a suspect, Mitchel John Andonov back to Edmonton Alberta to stand trial on eight outstanding warrants.
Police are not saying exactly when they will be taking Andonov, 26, back to the prairies, but it will be in the “next couple of days” according to Constable Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP. On his journey out of Nanaimo, Mitchen John Andonov will be escorted by Nanaimo RCMP officers and once they all arrive in Edmonton, Andonov will be turned over to Edmonton Police Service officers and taken into custody in the Alberta Capital.
For security reasons, the times of his departure and arrival will not be announced.
Mitchel John Andonov is wanted on eight outstanding warrants for his arrest, most are property related offences.
The cost of the flight is being paid for by the Nanaimo RCMP Detachment. “This individual has been in our community for two months and during that time, we believe he actively and willingly participated in a criminal life style. We are therefore taking measures to protect our community and have him removed from it”, said Constable Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP
Andonov was one of two males arrested at a home in the 1000 block of Oakley Crescent early on Thursday morning by members of the Nanaimo RCMP Property Crime Unit. Mitchel Andonov and a 28-year old man were arrested for multiple break and enters in the Nanaimo area. Police believe the break-ins began in December 2011. The second man is not facing any charges.
Many of the items were seized as the result of Andonov allegedly kicking in the front door to selected homes. Vehicles were also targeted and items stolen.
