On October 20, 2023, Creston RCMP was alerted that there was a wanted American fugitive, Cole Levine, in the Creston Valley. Levine was wanted in the United States for rape, attempted kidnapping, and aggravated assault. Levine was a top priority fugitive in the United States.

Frontline officers immediately responded to the 1600 Block of Northwest Boulevard, Creston.

Officers located Levine immediately, advising him he was under arrest. Levine surrendered to Creston officers without incident. Levine has been held in custody with the Creston RCMP.

This was another outstanding response and performance by Creston Detachment’s frontline team. I am proud of my officers for their excellent work on this file and arresting such a dangerous individual, says Detachment Commander S/Sgt. Brandon Buliziuk.

Creston RCMP are now liaising with Canada Border Services and the United States authorities to return Cole Levine back to the United States.
