A 23-year-old alleged dealer is wanted on multiple drug charges in Westchester, police said.

An alert has been issued by the Yonkers Police Department Warrant Squad, as they attempt to locate Takoshi Shand, who was arrested for third-degree criminal sale of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a controlled substance last year.

Shand, who is known to frequent Stewart Place in Yonkers, later failed to appear in court to respond to the charges, and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest by the court.

Police described Shand as being approximately 6-foot-1, weighing 250 pounds with a large build. He has black hair, brown eyes, and no distinguishing facial features, investigators said. He has tattoos on his left hand and right forearm.

Anyone who recognizes Shand, or has information on his whereabouts, has been asked to contact the Yonkers Police Department Warrant Squad by calling (914) 377-7253 or texting the keyword “YPD” plus the tip to 847411.
