Police say this man glued the doors of a coronavirus vaccination clinic in Langford shut last month.

Mounties on Vancouver Island are searching for a suspect who they say decided to put glue on the doors of a COVID-19 vaccination clinic.

On Sept. 29, a man in his 50s walked up to the doors of the COVID-19 vaccination clinic at the West Shore Mall in Langford and glued the door locks shut, according to a press release from the West Shore RCMP.

Police say the glue rendered the doors inoperable and made it “impossible” to enter the clinic, which was closed at the time.

West Shore RCMP say they were recently able to obtain video surveillance, which captured the suspect’s alleged actions.

The suspect is described as a 5-foot-8 tall medium-build male in his 50s with a mustache. He was wearing glasses, a beige tilly hat, a blue plaid shirt, and blue jeans along with black and white shoes. He also had a black poncho that had yellow on the inside.

“While we understand that not everyone shares the same beliefs during this pandemic, this act of mischief is a criminal offence and will be treated as such,” West Shore RCMP Const. Alex BĂ©rubĂ©, media spokesperson for the detachment, said in the release.

Anyone with information is asked to call the West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264.
