KAMLOOPS – Mounties identified one suspect and are searching for a second involved in 13 break-ins of Aberdeen and Sahali area businesses in November.
The businesses were broken into the night of Nov. 13 and early morning hours of Nov. 14.
Cheryl Bush, a spokesperson for the Kamloops RCMP says the two individuals entered the businesses using a variety of methods, including a crowbar. Bush says investigators believe the suspects were targeting the businesses for cash, but police are not releasing the total amount stolen.
Mounties are identifying persons involved by examining DNA evidence, fingerprints, photo line-ups and video surveillance.
A male suspect linked to several of the incidents is believed to be from the Lower Mainland, according to RCMP. He has not been arrested.
Some of the stolen property along with a stolen F350 pickup truck has been recovered.
The investigation is ongoing.
