Vancouver Police search for wanted man associated to Lower Mainland gang conflict

Vancouver Police are appealing for help to find 45-year-old Romano Martodihardjo, currently wanted Canada-wide for firearms offences and possession of stolen property.

Martodihardjo, believed to be associated to the Lower Mainland gang conflict, has been wanted since April 2018. The charges stem from Taskforce Tourniquet, a joint-forces operation led by the Vancouver Police that targeted four major violent crime groups in the Lower Mainland.

Mr. Martodihardjo is dark-skinned, with short brown hair and brown eyes. He is 5’5″ tall and weighs 170 pounds. He may have ties to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, but is originally from Alberta.

Anyone who sees Romano Martodihardjo, or knows his whereabouts, should call 9-1-1 immediately and not approach him. Tips can be shared by calling the Vancouver Police at (604)-717-2596 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
