The West District RCMP is seeking the public's assistance in locating a man wanted on a warrant.

On October 28, 2019, a warrant of arrest was issued in Edmundston Provincial Court for 42-year-old Bernny Parent from Grand Falls, N.B.

He is charged with breaking and entering, committing an indictable offence inside a dwelling house, uttering threats, and assault.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred on December 14, 2018, in Saint-André during which a residence was broken into, and the occupants of the home were allegedly threatened and assaulted.

Bernny Parent is described as being five feet 10 inches (178 centimetres) tall and weighing approximately 180 pounds (86 kilograms). He has brown hair, brown eyes and is known to frequent the Grand Falls, Perth-Andover and Tobique First Nation areas.

Anyone who sees Parent is encouraged not to approach him and to call 911 immediately.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Bernny Parent is asked to contact the Saint‑Léonard RCMP at 506-473-3137. Information can also be provided anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or by Secure Web Tips at
