The Sylvan Lake RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect who was involved in a rash of property related crime in Eckville recently.

During this time period, at least four break and enters to houses occurred where vehicle keys and wallets were stolen. These residences were unlocked and people were home at the time sleeping. As a result, four vehicles were stolen, two of which have since been recovered in Red Deer. The suspect also entered several unlocked vehicles and removed purses and wallets. The suspect then used or attempted to use stolen credit cards at a number of locations in Red Deer and Blackfalds on Saturday morning.

The male was caught on numerous surveillance videos. He is described as being in his twenties, short dark hair with slight side burns. He may have some missing front teeth. As well, he was wearing a black zip up hoody, blue jeans and sun glasses on his head. He was seen driving a grey or lighter colored Jeep Grand Cherokee.

If you can identify this person, please contact the Sylvan Lake RCMP at (403)858-7200 or call CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-888-222-TIPS (8477).
