Local police are looking for tips from the public to help solve a July theft in Qualicum Beach.

Corporal Jesse Foreman reported this week that the incident took place on July 25 at the Shady Rest Pub on the waterfront when an unidentified man  entered the staff-only office at the pub.

While inside, the man stole an employee’s wallet and iphone. He then fled the area in an unknown vehicle and later used the stolen credit card to purchase gas at a nearby service station.

The suspect is described as Caucasian, 30 to 40 years old with a medium, athletic build. At the time of the theft he was clean shaven and wearing a white and black baseball cap.

Anyone with information about the identity of the person in the photograph is asked to contact the Oceanside RCMP at 250-248-6111 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
