Vancouver – If you help catch Brandon Teixeira you make up to $5000.
That’s the offer from Crime Stoppers for information leading to the arrest of this extremely dangerous man who’s wanted for First Degree murder. But don’t try this on your own. He’s extremely dangerous.
Teixeira is wanted for a middle-of-the-night murder of Nicholas Khabra on October 23, 2017. At about 2.10 a.m. Surrey RCMP received a report of shots fired from the 14300-block of Crescent Road.
Khabra was transported to hospital where he later died. A short time after the shooting report a female called police to say she too had been wounded and was found by cops on Highway 99 at exit 10. She had been with Khabra.
Khabra was targeted for murder, police believe.
“Mr. Khabra and the female victim are known to each other and were together at the time of the shooting,” says Cpl. Meghan Foster of IHIT. “The investigation to date leads police to believe that Mr. Khabra’s homicide was a targeted act.”
“IHIT will continue its search for Brandon Teixeira until he is in police custody,” said Cpl. Frank Jang of IHIT.
“We believe the reward offered by Crime Stoppers will provide an extra incentive to those with intimate knowledge of Mr. Teixeira’s current whereabouts to come forward.”
Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest of Brandon Teixeira. Tipsters remain anonymous and are urged to contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or on the website www.solvecrime.ca.
There is a significant caution from police. Do not confront the suspect. He’s extremely dangerous and may be armed.
He’s known to have associates in Edmonton and Calgary as well.
