One commonality was that several people told police they saw a male suspect and they all had a similar description. One photo was taken of this man while caught in the act on January 7th. 

Police say the suspect they want to question is a man with light to medium skin complexion. He was seen wearing a green or camo jacket with white logo on the upper left side, black pants, white runners and he had a large bright green face cloth covering the bottom half of his face.

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying this male. 

Anyone who knows who this is or could be, call West Shore RCMP at (250) 474-2264.
