Unlocked door leads to yet another break and enter in the city
Around 4:30 this morning a man entered an unlocked patio door on McKay, waking up the resident who then confronted him and chased him off. The suspect in the incident is not known to the resident of the home, and he was interrupted from his plans before any property could be stolen.
The RCMP are seeking assistance on the file and describe the suspect as a First Nations male in his late teens to early twenties, with a skinny build and short hair. At the time of this morning's break in he was wearing jeans and a black hoody.
Earlier this week on the blog we reviewed the recent burst of Break and enters that took place around the Thanksgiving Day weekend, the majority of which took place in the early morning hours and involved kicking in the door to the target residence.
With the exception of all but one attempt, the suspect (s) were scared off either by alarms or by the homeowner confronting them.
The RCMP have issued a statement on this latest B and E which you can review here.
Should you have any information on any of the recent break and entry attempts you are asked to call the RCMP at 250-627-0700 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
