The homeowner on site discovered that their home had been broken into and the RCMP quickly responded to the scene.

Officers searched the property and the suspect wasn’t found, but they were able to find what’s believed to be the suspect and associated vehicle through video footage.

“After conducting a review of the homes video surveillance system, investigators have obtained images of both their break and enter suspect, who clearly took steps to disguise their identity, and a vehicle, they believe to be associated to that suspect,” said Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey.

“We are asking the general public to call police immediately if they spot this suspect vehicle in their community. RCMP also urge the public not to approach this vehicle or any of its occupants.”

The suspect is believed to be a man with black or dark coloured baggy pants, a black hoodie with what appears to be a white “Metal Mulisha logo, a pair of black gloves, tinted ski goggles and a red bandana covering his face.

The suspect vehicle is an older model, silver four-door sedan with winter tires on steel rims and notable damage to the driver’s side front door.

If you spot this vehicle or suspect, or have any information that could help investigators, please contact Cst. Regan Donahue of the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.

You can also report tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477.
