CALGARY - A man accused of selling equipment to farmers, then allegedly failing to produce the merchandise, is being sought by police in two western provinces.

The RCMP and police in Calgary are looking for Bradly Barry Kowalczyk, who is facing charges of fraud and breaching conditions of his release.

The charges relate to alleged offences in Calgary and six other Alberta communities, including Three Hills, Chestermere, Crowsnest Pass, Viking, St. Paul and Olds.

Kowalczyk is also wanted in Weyburn, Sask.

Mounties allege that over the past year, online classified ads offering high-end agricultural and industrial equipment have been used to take deposits from farmers, but the buyers never get their items.

Kowalczyk is believed to be travelling in a dark-grey 2012 Nissan Titan truck with a 2009 Fleetwood travel trailer.
