KITCHENER -- Guelph police say they are currently looking for an armed and dangerous man wanted for a number of firearm offences.
Police say Nicholas Olner, 28, shouldn't be approached. A news release from police says he is known to target sex trade workers.
On Oct. 7, Guelph police investigated a robbery at a hotel in the south end of Guelph, Police say a man, later identified as Olner, stole the woman's belongings and cash, and used a gun during the robbery.
Police believed he was at a home in the city of Brantford on Oct. 17. Brantford police went to the home around 4 p.m., and closed several streets and told residents to shelter in place. Olner wasn't located in the home, according to officials.
Police say they have reason to believe believe he's committed similar offences before.
"It's been a very comprehensive investigation that's crossed over multiple jurisdictions," said Const. Kyle Grant. "As this investigation is ongoing, you get to learn things from other jurisdictions, similar things that have happened and through the information that we've gathered, we don't think this is potentially the first incident, that this male has done this type of thing."
Anyone with information is asked to contact police or Crime Stoppers.
