Police responded to a series of break-ins in Kamloops last night where strangely very little was reported stolen.

Kamloops RCMP responded to a series of break and enters in four different businesses in the McGill Road and Dalhousie Drive area between 11:15 p.m. and 11:50 p.m. Sept. 21.

In each case a glass door was broken to gain entry, but very little was stolen and in some cases possibly nothing at all, according to an RCMP release.

A photo of a suspect captured on video has been released in the hopes he can be identified.

"It's too early to say that the same suspect would be responsible for all of those incidents, but investigations are ongoing and it's certainly a possibility," Kamloops RCMP Sgt. Matt Van Laer said in a release. "We are hoping to have a better idea once the videos from all the different locations are collected."

The male was described as Caucasian, wearing a black hoodie and carrying a red and white back pack.

"We certainly appreciate the frustration for the business owners of the area, so any help from the public or neighbouring businesses is welcomed," Van Laer said.

Anyone with any information about these break-ins is urged to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
