KELOWNA - RCMP in Kelowna are asking for the public's help tracking down the suspect or suspects connected with a number of break-ins over the last month. 

RCMP say they aren't sure whether they are looking for one person, or a few, but suspect the same person or group is responsible for a series of break-ins since March 27. 

The four break-ins all have two common themes - the suspect enters the building by breaking a glass door or window, and in each break-in sports merchandise was stolen, according to an RCMP media release.

On March 27, thousands of dollars worth of sports jersey's were stolen from a business in the 1800 block of Harvey Avenue. This same business was again broken into on April 26, where more sports jerseys were taken.

Additionally, on March 29, more jerseys, as well as computers, cash and a signed baseball cap were stolen from a business in the 2200 block of Enterprise Way. 

On April 3, someone broke into a business in the 1700 block of Cooper Road and stole soccer team jackets, as well as winter jackets, track pants, hoodies and shoes. 

If you have any information regarding these incidents police are asking you to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.
