Tournkara is, at present, on probation in Montgomery County, police said. He has failed to comply with his probation conditions and now has a probation warrant lodged against him, police said. 

Police believe Tournkara is in Philadelphia, Cheltenham or Lansdale.

Tournkara allegedly made three marijuana sales to an undercover detective of Lansdale Police's Street Crimes Unit between December 2012 and January 2013, police said. He was arrested at a traffic stop after the third alleged purchase on Jan. 31, 2013, police said.
