West Shore RCMP is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect after he allegedly broke into a vehicle parked at a residential apartment building.
Police say that the incident took place on Feb. 23 when officers were notified about a vehicle that had its window smashed. Items had subsequently been stolen from the vehicle.
According to police, the vehicle was parked in an unsecured parkade at an apartment building on Redington Avenue in Langford.
Police managed to obtain video surveillance from the security cameras at the building and spotted a male suspect with a slim build and approximately 20-30 years old. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a grey and red Ecko tracksuit.
We would like to remind the public to not leave property in your vehicle. Thieves will break in for as little as a few coins or a pack of cigarettes says Cst. Alex Bérubé, Media Relations Officer with the West Shore RCMP.
Once armed with a few pieces of ID, thieves are able to then apply for and receive loans in your name, additional credit cards, and cash advances. If you don’t notice the theft for a number of days, the damage done could be extensive.
Anyone with information about the male is asked to contact Const. Skulmoski of the West Shore RCMP Crime Reduction Unit at 250-474-8768.
Police did not specify what items were stolen from the vehicle during the incident.
