KELOWNA – The glass front doors of a drywall supply business on Appaloosa Road in Kelowna was smashed by vandals last month and RCMP hope the public can help identify the suspect.

Police were called to the 3300 block of Appaloosa Road at around 10:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 17.

When they arrived they found nobody inside and nothing missing but the front glass door had been smashed.

Video surveillance shows a suspect wearing jeans, a hoodie, a leather coat and sunglasses ride up on an electric bike, according to a Crime Stoppers release.

“The video shows the man approaching the business, going back to his bike for a tool and then smashing the window. He enters the building for about a minute and exits empty-handed,” the release says.
