The Division of Parole and Probation needs helping finding a suspect who we first told you about in January who's still on the run after almost a year.

Law enforcement says 47-year-old Scott Michael Westman was convicted of two counts of felony burglary.

Authorities say Westman absconded from supervision in December 2016, three months after his release on parole, and all attempts to locate him have been unsuccessful.

"He does have ties to the community. We do believe it's likely he's still in the Reno-Carson area but we have received some tips that he could be in the Sacramento area," says Sgt. Dave Callen.

Officials say Westman has a substance abuse history coupled with a lengthy criminal history consisting of 13 felonies, six gross misdemeanors and two misdemeanors classifying him as high risk. His criminal history includes multiple prior felony Burglary, Grand Theft and Identity Theft convictions spanning over 25 years. The public is cautioned against making personal contact.

Westman is white, 5’ 11", 220 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He has a skulls tattoo on his right arm and a tattoo of Portland State University on the right side of his back. 

If you know where he is, call the Division of Parole and Probation Fugitive Apprehension Unit at 775-684-2644.
