Nanaimo RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a male who broke into the Modern Cafe on Commercial Street.
The incident happened just before midnight on Tuesday, August 30th.
The suspect kicked in the rear door and, once inside, he made off with a till containing an undisclosed amount of money.

The male suspect is white, 35-45 years old, 5 ft. 5 to 5 ft. 6, with a slim build, and brown hair worn in long pony tail.
If you have information on this person contact the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
