Prosecutor Lacy Miller says a warrant was issued May 20 when Leaf was indicted. Miller says Leaf has been working in British Columbia.
The ex-Washington State University and San Diego Chargers quarterback is charged with burglary to a habitation. Leaf also was indicted on seven counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and one count of delivery of a simulated controlled substance.
Leaf coached quarterbacks at West Texas A&M in Canyon, where the indictment was returned.
