ABBOTSFORD Police are seeking public assistance to locate Lorne Joseph Guilbault, 38, wanted on several outstanding arrest warrants.
Guilbault is wanted for driving while prohibited, breach of probation, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, assault with a weapon, and fail to stop for police.
He is described as 5’6” tall, 150 pounds, with a slim build, brown hair and blue eyes.
He is also missing all his fingers on both hands.
On July 28, Abbotsford Police patrol officers observed Guilbault getting into the driver’s seat of a vehicle in a local townhouse complex. The officers were aware that he had outstanding warrants for his arrest and a traffic stop was initiated. During the traffic stop, he intentionally rammed the police vehicle and hit another parked car with his vehicle as he fled the complex at a high rate of speed, narrowly missing several bystanders and children.
Guilbault had been released on bail for a similar incident when this event occurred. He engages in high-risk criminal driving behaviour demonstrating little regard for the safety of our citizens.
Guilbault has criminal convictions for the following offences: fail to comply with probation/recognizance, theft under $5,000, theft over $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime, driving while disqualified, break and enter, possession of stolen mail, mischief, driving while impaired, traffic in scheduled substance, possession of scheduled substance for purpose of trafficking, possession of a scheduled substance, fail to attend court, unauthorized possession of a weapon, and procures to make an identity document.
Anyone who knows his whereabouts is asked to contact the Abbotsford Police Department by calling 604-859-5225. (AbbyPD file 2020-17710)
