The Outer Gulf Islands RCMP detachment is looking for the public’s assistance after a seasonal residence on one of the smaller Gulf Islands was broken into twice on the same date,
Sometime during the early morning of July 29th and again later in the evening of the same day, two suspects broke into some out buildings on the property walking off with the owners property. The suspects then returned during the evening and entered the house, again taking more things.
The suspects were wearing some identifiable clothing.
- work boots
- Blue running shoes with white rubber toe
- Brown camo patterned pants
Based on the location of the island the suspects would have had to have travelled there by boat.
The surveillance footage available does offer a small amount of security for property owners who may not be at their residences full time said RCMP Corporal Chris Manseau
However homeowners and neighbours should always lock doors, secure windows, and never leave valuables at unattended residences.
Some of the items taken include; A Cobra brand Handheld Marine VHF Radio, Canon 18x50 Image Stablized Binoculars, megaboom Bluetooth speakers, several Dewalt tools, 4 inflatable PFD’s among other items.
If you recognize these suspects or have information about this crime, please contact the Outer Gulf Islands RCMP detachment at 250-629-6171.
