A pastor from Southern Manitoba continues to elude police after an arrest warrant was issued last week.

The pastor of the Church of God Restoration in the Rural Municipality of Hanover has stated on social media that a warrant has been issued for his arrest, in relation to violating public health orders.

In a sermon, Tobias Tissen was recorded on Sunday saying that he went into hiding in order to be able to preach that morning.

According to a post on Tissen's Facebook account, RCMP visited his property on Monday, May 31st, but he was not home.

Anyone who knows his whereabouts is being asked to contact RCMP at 204-326-4452.
