Nanaimo man with multiple warrants sought by police

Suspect has tattoo that says ‘Shorty’

Police are hoping the public can help locate a Nanaimo man with multiple warrants issued against him.

Nanaimo RCMP are searching for Derek Michael Vautour, 30, who is wanted for two counts of possessing a forged credit card and breaching terms of his recognizance.

Police allege that on Aug. 9, Vautour was in possession of a credit card stolen from a parked vehicle. It’s believed he then made purchases with that credit card at a number of unidentified locations in south Nanaimo.

Vautour is described as a five-foot-tall caucasian man weighing 100 pounds. He has short brown hair, hazel eyes and a tattoo that says ‘Shorty’ on his right arm. Anyone who sees this individual is asked to call the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
