Daniel Thomas Dwyer

Arrest warrant issued for suspected drug smuggler from Delta

Man, 49, caught carrying 27 kilos of marijuana in his luggage at Vancouver International Airport, fails to show in court

An arrest warrant has been issued for a Delta man caught carrying some 27 kilograms of marijuana in his luggage at Vancouver International Airport last November.

Richmond Mounties are asking for the public’s help in locating Daniel Thomas Dwyer, 49, who was arrested on Nov. 8, 2012 after the discovery of the drugs and was subsequently charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purposes of trafficking.

He failed to make his court appearance in Richmond provincial court on May 28, which led to an arrest warrant being issued.

Dwyer is described by police as five foot five inches tall, weighs 200 pounds, has a heavy build, fair complexion, short brown hair, hazel eyes and a goatee.

Anyone with information about Dwyer’s whereabouts is asked to call the Richmond RCMP at 604-278-1212, or if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
