RCMP are asking for public help in apprehending the suspect of an attempted break and enter from last night.

A Kamloops resident heard the doorbell to his Mesa Estates home off Springhill Drive ring several times at about 8 p.m. Wednesday. The rings were followed by a loud bang at the side door leading into an attached garage.

The homeowner followed the noise and found a man had forced his way into the mud room of his home.

Upon being discovered, the suspect immediately fled the scene on foot.

RCMP patrol cars and police tracking dog searched the area but failed to locate the suspect.

The suspect was described as being a white male, standing about 6' to 6' 4", about 20 to 30 years old with a medium build and was seen wearing a brown checkered jacket with a tan fisherman style hat.

Anyone with information regarding the incident are asked to contact RCMP at 250-828-3000.
