“Investigators have not yet been able to establish the identity of the person in the video,” said Const. Chris Terleski.

“To advance the investigation, we are releasing the images with the hope someone will recognize the suspect and contact police.”

If you recognize the person in the photograph or have any information about this theft, you’re asked to contact Const. Helgerson of the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP at 250-545-7171.
