Prince Rupert RCMP are turning to the public in hopes of identifying the suspect involved in a break and enter in mid-July.

On July 20, members of the Prince Rupert RCMP responded to a complaint of a break and enter at the Hays Cove Petro Canada. The complainant reported witnessing two suspects fleeing the store on foot carrying what was believed to be cartons of cigarettes.

A search of the area turned up empty, but video recorded the night of the incident shows one of the alleged suspects dressed all in black and wearing masks and gloves. While the face may not be identifiable, the suspect caught on video was wearing a unique jacket with military-type bars on the left sleeve and a distinct pattern on the front.

“At this stage police have exhausted all avenues of investigation and are looking to generate additional leads,” said Const. Matt Ericson of the Prince Rupert RCMP.

“We are turning to the community for assistance identifying the suspect wearing this unique jacket. Anyone who recognizes this jacket is asked to call the RCMP or Crimestoppers.”

Anyone with information regarding this ongoing investigation is asked to call the RCMP at 250-627-0700 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
