KAMLOOPS – The owner of Lee’s Music in Kamloops is offering a cash reward to the thief who broke into the business on the weekend and made off with some equipment.

Mike Miltmore is appealing directly to the person who broke into the music store on Battle Street Friday night, April 8.

“We’re looking for (the equipment) back, no questions asked. There’s a cash reward,” he says in a video posted to Facebook.

Miltmore is also asking for help to spread the word to get the equipment back.

“We know the guy who did it is not a professional (thief) and he probably doesn’t even know what he has,” he says in the video. “It’s stuff we use for events like Music in the Park.”

An image of the suspect from the store’s security camera was also posted to Facebook.

The stolen property includes a Allen and Heath R72 mixer, a QSC K12 speaker, a Toshiba laptop and wireless microphone packs.

Miltmore says he can be contacted by phone at 250-319-5050 or email at mike@LeesMusic.net.
