THE Abbotsford Police Department on Friday announced that it believes that compelling circumstances exist to issue a warning that Jason Himpfen poses a significant risk to the safety of the community and anyone who may be associated with him.
Himpfen is involved in the Lower Mainland Gang Conflict. As many gang-related shootings occur in public places, this means that Himpfen’s presence in public places creates a serious risk to public safety, police said.
Abbotsford Police said they are taking this step to raise awareness about the threat to public safety and is asking anyone who sees Himpfen in a public place to first leave the area for their safety and then contact Abbotsford Police at 604-859-5225. Where possible, police officers will attend that location and take steps to maintain public safety.
Abbotsford Police believe it is in the public’s best interest that Himpfen’s identity is known so anyone associated with or in close physical proximity to him clearly understands their safety could be at risk. Himpfen is 45 years old, 5′ 10 ” (178 cm), 200 lb (91 kg), with short dark hair and hazel eyes. He frequently wears a full beard.
