Police seek thief ID

When one young man thought to help himself to an early Christmas present, he found the vehicle he was trying to steal was in fact an RCMP bait car.

The bait car, parked in the French Creek area on Dec. 18, was entered by a young Caucasian man wearing a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball cap.

Oceanside RCMP Sergeant Darrell Robertson said police believe the suspect may go by the name of Tyler, or he may have been in the company of someone with that name. Some articles were stolen from the vehicle however police are not releasing those details at this time.

The police are requesting the assistance of the public in identifying this individual, who Robertson said is also considered suspect in other thefts from vehicles.

 

If you know this suspect, call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or the Oceanside RCMP at 250-248-6111.
