KAMLOOPS - A Kamloops suspect broke into the same RCMP bait car three times last month, according to police.

Surveillance video shows Joadth Anderson, 31, breaking into the bait car and stealing items left inside in October, RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie says in a media release. There were just a few days between each break-in.

Anderson has been charged with two counts of theft under and two counts of fail to comply with a probation order. He is known to police.

"Bait vehicles are used to deter theft from vehicles and theft of vehicles," Shelkie says in the release. "The public is again reminded to remove anything of value and to lock their vehicles. Please immediately report any suspicious activity in your neighbourhood."
