Convicted murderer Merrick still at large

SURREY – A convicted murderer who escaped from a minimum-security jail in Mission on March 31 is still at large and wanted for two Surrey robberies committed in April.

 

The Canadian Bankers Association is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to his arrest and conviction.

 

Shawn Merrick, 43, from Surrey was serving a sentence for second-degree murder and robbery when he escaped.

 

Authorities notified the public at the time.

 

Besides his Canada-wide warrant for escaping lawful custody, Merrick is also wanted for robberies in Surrey on April 17.

 

Police say there was an attempted robbery at a bank in the 15900-block of Fraser Highway at 1 p.m., followed by a robbery five minutes later in the 15100-block of 101st Avenue.

 

Police ask anyone who sees him or knows where he is to call 911.
