A man considered a high risk to re-offend is now the subject of a Canada-wide warrant after failing to return to a halfway house in Regina.

Mitchell Lawrence Sasakamoose, 49, has a lengthy history of violent offences. Police had issued a notice about Sasakamoose when he arrived at the halfway house June 6.

According to police, his offences have often involved the use of weapons. They say he also has contacts in both Regina and Saskatoon and is believed to have the resources to travel, so it is possible he has left Regina.

Police say anyone who spots him should call their local police.
