A reward of $ 50,000 has been put on the head of Blake Charbonneau, accused of controlling his victims and forcing them into the sex trade in addition to violently and sexually assaulting several women that he met on social media platforms, says the Bolo program, ‘’Canada’s Most Wanted’’ system, on its website. In collaboration with the EILP, Quebec’s Integrated Anti-Pimping Task Force, the Bolo program has amplified the priority search notices for which police services have already requested the public's help.
In a release, Sûreté du Québec said it is an unprecedented media campaign in Quebec of this kind that has been deployed to encourage citizens to report any information leading to the arrest of Blake Charbonneau. "The predation displayed by Blake Charbonneau, the seriousness and frequency of the acts reproached, the number of victims identified as well as the strong probability that there are additional victims, encourage us to do everything possible to locate him," said Inspector Pierre-Mathieu Viviers, Assistant Director, Criminal Investigations Branch, Sûreté du Québec.
Canada-wide warrants have been issued for pimping, life-threatening sexual assault and sexual assault with a weapon, among other criminal offences. The 35-year old man from Laval is suspected of having victimized numerous people and is not about to stop, added Sûreté du Québec. He is reportedly still at it and is very skillful on social media.
