A list of Canada's Top 25 Most Wanted has been released to the public, and if you're able to help the police apprehend someone from it, you could get a large financial reward.

On April 26, the BOLO Program — a non-profit organization that publicizes arrest warrants and encourages Canadians to "be on the lookout" for alleged criminals — released a list of Canada's most wanted individuals.

Those listed have been charged with a crime but have, thus far, avoided capture by the police.

The nationwide effort is searching for people all over the country, from B.C. to Quebec, and includes some who have been on the run since the 1980s.

The purpose of the list is to generate public awareness of these individuals and hopefully get tips about their whereabouts.

There are currently 25 people on the list, with the number one, Abilaziz Mohamed, arrested on April 27. A reward of up to $250,000 was offered for information leading to his arrest.

The other names on the list include Gene Karl Lahrkamp, Kier Bryan Granado, Nouraldin Rabee, Tommy Ngo, Youcef Bouras and more.

The individuals on the list are wanted for crimes including murder, manslaughter, pimping, attempted murder and accessory after the fact to murder.

If you have a tip that could help locate these individuals, you can contact local police investigating the person or send a tip anonymously to Crime Stoppers.

From there, if your tip helps the authorities in their investigation, you could get a reward (some rewards are up to $100,000) depending on the usefulness of the information, which case you've assisted with and if there were other tipsters.

BOLO also will be regularly updating the Top 25 Most Wanted list as the status of each case changes.
