Lake Country police asking for help after string of thefts

Caucasian suspect with scruffy beard sought for questioning

Police are looking for witnesses who might have information regarding a string of Lake Country thefts over the last week.

On September 22, 2013 at 11 pm, the Lake Country RCMP received a report of a theft from a vehicle on the 11300 block of Bottom Wood Lake Road. An unknown man was seen entering a black Toyota Tacoma before fleeing the scene with a small amount of loose change. Since then, there have been at least 10 other reports in Lake Country of a similar nature that police believe could be related. A possible suspect has been identified but police are looking for witnesses that can link him to these or other, previously unreported thefts.

The suspect is described as:

•    Caucasian

•    29-30 years old

•    6′ tall and 190 lbs with a medium build

•    Scruffy beard

•    Last seen wearing a dark track-style jacket, green shorts and light-coloured sneakers

Police would like to remind the public that a little prevention can go a long way. Remove any valuables, including spare car keys, and lock your vehicle.

Anyone with any information regarding the identity of the suspect, or unreported thefts from vehicles, are asked to call the Lake Country RCMP at 250-766-2288. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at www.crimestoppers.net or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
