SASKATCHEWAN – Police continue their search for a man who failed to show up to be sentenced on drug trafficking and weapons offences.
A spokesperson for Saskatchewan RCMP told SASKTODAY.ca Wednesday that their investigation is ongoing and the Saskatchewan RCMP Federal Serious and Organized Crime Unit is still looking for 41-year-old Kurt Miller.
Miller failed to appear in North Battleford Provincial Court in February when he was to be sentenced. He was originally to be sentenced in January but his lawyer had asked that his sentencing be delayed until February to give him time to get his affairs in order and the Crown didn’t object. Miller's co-accused, Mitch Hutchinson was sentenced in July 2021 to seven years in prison.
Miller was arrested in May 2020 during a traffic stop in Regina, and the next day, the Saskatchewan RCMP Federal Serious and Organized Crime Unit raided his rural home in the R.M. of Glenside 27 kilometres north of Biggar.
As a result of the traffic stop by Regina Police, Miller was charged with drug trafficking offences. He was also charged with possession of proceeds of crime under $5,000, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public and breach of probation.
After a search of the rural property, Miller was charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking, possession of the proceeds of crime over $5,000 and 16 firearms-related charges.
At the property, police seized methamphetamine, fentanyl, GHB, Xanax pills and LSD. They also seized numerous weapons including a semi-automatic rifle, a shotgun, a sawed-off double-barrel shotgun, a spent anti-tank weapons, a revolver and body armour. They also found $16,080 in Canadian currency, money counters, packaging for drugs, eight cell phones, computers and tablets.
Police believe Miller may be in Biggar, Brownlee, Moose Jaw, Regina, or Saskatoon, but this isn’t confirmed.
Police advise the public not to approach Miller. If you see him, contact your nearest RCMP Detachment or police service. You can report information and tips regarding his whereabouts anonymously by calling 1-800-222-8477.
