RCMP ask for public’s help locating vehicle: white Mitsubishi RVR with Saskatchewan plate

Oceanside RCMP are asking for the public’s help identifying the vehicle a suspect used to flee the scene of a break-and-enter in Qualicum Beach on Thursday morning.

The break-and-enter was interrupted by a neighbour, who police say the suspect (a male) then assaulted.

After being confronted by the neighbour, the male suspect ran away on foot and was seen getting into a 2012 white Mitsubishi RVR sport utility vehicle, bearing Saskatchewan licence plate 336 LAH.

RCMP hope the public can help locate the vehicle.

“If you see the vehicle, do not approach it. Please call the local police or Crime Stoppers immediately,” said the release.
