Nanaimo RCMP say a Canada Wide warrant is out on a man with a history of violence, who could be in the area.

24 year old Jesse Wayne Goodale is wanted for parole violations.

RCMP say Goodale is from Nanaimo and has contacts and family throughout central Vancouver Island, and he may be going by the alias of “Chase Goodale”.

He’s white, 5-foot-10, 220 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.  He also has several tattoos on his forearms and hands, including: “weed” tattooed across the fingers on his left hand and “W.G.” tattooed on his right hand.

Police say given his history of violence Goodale should be considered dangerous.  And RCMP are telling people who know where he is, or see him, to stay away from him and call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.  Tips can also be submitted online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com
