Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Deputy U.S. Marshals say a man featured as our Fugitive of the Week back in January has been caught thanks to viewer tips.

Christopher Montreal was wanted after deputies say he violated his probation stemming from an original charge of Criminal Mischief in October 2013.

He was recently arrested after someone recognized him on our OnTheLookout page.

Montreal was arrested at a hotel in Carrier Circle and charged with violating his probation.

According to deputies, Syracuse police have also charged him in a separate case involving stolen material.

Montreal's arrest is No. 313 for OnTheLookout.net.

Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - Deputy U.S. Marshals need your help finding our ‘Fugitive of the Week’ whose criminal record includes larceny and burglary.

Deputies say Christopher Montreal was placed on probation stemming from an original charge of Criminal Mischief in October 2013.

Onondaga County Sheriff's Deputies say a month-and-a-half into his probation, Montreal broke the terms.

“The violation basically stems from the address he gave probation, it did not exist,” said Deputy U.S. Marshal Joe Ciciarelli, the Federal Task Force Supervisor. “We have no idea where Mr. Montreal could be at this point in time.”

Ciciarelli said that's a concern, especially when you take into account his prior record of larceny and burglary.

“He has no means of support and we have a pretty good indication that he is probably up to the some other type of criminal activity,” Ciciarelli said.

Deputies say a warrant was issued for Montreal in January for violating his probation and say he was last seen on Syracuse's West Side.

Officials describe Montreal as:
  • 25-year-old Caucasian-male
  • 5 feet-8 inches tall
  • 180 pounds
  • Has the name “Tina” tattooed on right forearm
If you can aid deputies in locating Montreal, you are urged to take action and call (315) 473-7625.

All calls will remain strictly confidential.
