Homicide detectives from B.C. are renewing their calls for Albertans to be on the lookout for missing murder suspect Brandon Nathan Teixeira.

Teixeira is charged with first-degree murder in the October 2017 death of Nicholas Khabra in Surrey.

“We are asking all Albertans to be on the lookout for this man: Brandon Nathan Teixeira,” Cpl. Frank Jang of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team told reporters in Edmonton, adding that the 27-year-old is known to have associates in Alberta and could be in the province himself.

This isn’t the first time IHIT has focused its efforts in Alberta.

The force announced back in September that the fugitive could be in Calgary or Alberta.

Mounties also believe Texeira may be using food delivery service SkipTheDishes.

The company has issued a warning people to be on the lookout for the fugitive, who may be armed and dangerous.

The last confirmed sighting of Teixeira was in early September when security camera footage showed him making a purchase at a liquor store in Langley.

Jang encouraged the public to review the images from that sighting, but also warned them to keep in mind the Teixeira may have radically altered his appearance by changing his hair and facial hair using accessories such as glasses.

The accused is described as white, 5’10” tall, 160 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. He has a snake tattoo on the left side of his chest and a sleeve tattoo on his left arm.

Anyone who thinks they may have seen Teixeira is asked to contact IHIT at 1-877-551-4448 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.

There is a $55,000 for information that leads to his arrest.
