OSOYOOS - The public is being asked to help identify a suspicious male who broke into a plumbing business late last night.
A Caucasian male broke into Joe’s Plumbing and Heating around 11:35 p.m. yesterday, April 5, Cpl. Jason Bayda, a spokesperson for Osoyoos RCMP, says in a release.
Bayda says officers are examining video surveillance which captured the man arriving at the scene in a late model Hyundai Sonata. After breaking the glass of the front door to gain access, the male, estimated to be in his mid-thirties, spent more than an hour at the location cutting phone lines and computer cables, Bayda says.
