Winnipeg police warn of pedophile's release

Police are warning the public about the release of a convicted pedophile considered to be a high risk to re-offend.

Ryan James Gabourie, 32, will be released from Headingley Correctional Institution Thursday after serving sentences for breaching the conditions of his release from a federal prison after serving seven years for offences including molesting five boys between the ages of 5 and 11.

Gabourie has also been convicted of possession of child pornography.

While Gabourie took part in some sex offender treatment programs while in jail, but police still consider him a risk to both male and female children.

Police believe Gabourie will take up residence in Winnipeg upon his release.

Anyone with information about Gabourie is asked to call police at 204-984-1888.
