Surrey RCMP has joined forces with the Bolo Program to offer a  $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of kidnapping suspect Meaz Nour-Eldin.

According to police, Nour-Eldin is wanted on charges of kidnapping, unlawful confinement, aggravated assault, robbery, and firearms offences

The charges stem from an incident which took place on the morning of July 4, 2019,  when police responded to a report of an alleged kidnapping of an adult male victim from Surrey. The victim was located the morning of July 5, 2019, and taken to hospital.

Following an investigation, police identified and charged four suspects linked to the kidnapping. Three of those suspects have been arrested and Nour-Eldin is wanted on a Canada Wide warrant.

Police said he is also wanted on multiple provincial warrants in BC, Alberta, and Ontario in relation to drug trafficking, human trafficking, and sexual assault.

Surrey RCMP says that it is “elevating and amplifying” its search for Nour-Eldin by collaborating with the Bolo Program — which uses social media and technology to find Canada’s most wanted.

“This is a message for Meaz Nour-Eldin: there’s nowhere to go and we will apprehend you sooner or later,” said Sureey RCMP Insp. Cliff Chastellaine. “So just do the right thing: call a lawyer, and turn yourself in.”

Chastellaine also had a message for the 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 is believed to travel frequebtly between Eastern Canada and BC by car, bus, and train. In 2019, he was seen in Montreal, Quebec; London, Ontario; and Surrey, British Columbia.

He is described as a Somalian male standing at 6’1″ and 181 lbs, with a small face, crooked teeth, brown eyes and black braided hair. He has tattoos on his left hand, wrist and upper torso.

At this time Surrey RCMP is not looking for witnesses or people to testify as the case is ready to go to trial.

“We’re just looking for the location of Meaz Nour-Eldin, so he can be apprehended and face justice,” said RCMP in a release.

The public is being reminded that if they see Nour-Eldin they must take no action to apprehend him. Instead, they should call 911 immediately.
