West Shore RCMP is seeking the public’s help in identifying a man accused of causing roughly $2,000 in property damage to a Metchosin home that backs onto a popular beach.
The incident took place at approximately 5 p.m. at the rear of a property located near the 500-block of Swanwick Road in Metchosin, which backs onto Taylor Beach, said West Shore RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Nancy Saggar in a news release Monday.

The West Shore RCMP is now seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect. He is described as a male with light-coloured skin and facial hair, between 25 and 35 years old.
He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black jacket and a toque, and black shoes. A photo of the suspect has been released by RCMP
