Surrey RCMP partners with Bolo Program in search for man wanted for kidnapping

$50K-reward for ‘information leading to his capture’, available until Sept. 10

Surrey RCMP has partnered with the Bolo Program in its hunt for Meaz Nour-Eldin, who is wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for kidnapping.

Police announced the new collaboration Tuesday (March 10), along with a $50,000-reward for “information leading to his capture.”

Inspector Cliff Chastellaine of the Surrey RCMP Major Crime Unit said police aren’t looking for witnesses or people to testify.

“This case is already set to go to trial. We are just looking for the location of Nour-Eldin, so he can be apprehended and face justice,” said Chastellaine, adding that police do not want the public to apprehend Nour-Eldin. Chastellaine said to call 911 “immediately.”

Since July, according to Surrey RCMP, police have worked “diligently” to find Nour-Eldin.

“This is a message for Meaz Nour-Eldin: There’s nowhere to go and we will apprehend you sooner or later. So just do the right thing: call a lawyer, and turn yourself in,” said Chastellaine. “To the relatives, friends and associates of Nour-Eldin, I want to remind that you may faces charges for accessory after the fact if you assist Nour-Eldin in evading arrest.”

Nour-Eldin, 22, was charged following an investigation by the Surrey RCMP Serious Crime Unit last summer.

On July 4, 2019, around 7:30 a.m., police received a report on the alleged kidnapping of a man from Surrey, according to RCMP. Police said the victim was found the following morning and taken to hospital for “non-life threatening injuries.”

Through the investigation, according to Surrey RCMP, police identified four suspects, including Nour-Eldin. The suspects were charged with kidnapping, unlawful confinement, aggravated assault, robbery and firearms offences on July 25, 2019.

Three of those suspects have since been arrested.

The Canada-wide warrant for Nour-Eldin was announced on July 29, 2019.

Nour-Eldin is also wanted on provincial warrants in B.C., Alberta and Ontario related to drug trafficking, human trafficking and sexual assault, police said.

The $50,000-reward will only be available until Sept. 10, 2020.
