KELOWNA - Police are looking to the public for help identifying a suspect responsible for a break-in earlier this month.

On March 15, an unknown man went into unlocked common rooms of the Mission Shores Resort at 3880 Truswell Road and broke into the manager's office. The suspect took a key-card encoder, six key-card readers, a guitar and a first aid kit before fleeing on a BMX bicycle.

He's described as Caucasian with short black hair and sideburns, wearing a camouflage jacket over a black hoodie. He was also wearing dark pants, a white ball cap and was carrying a black backpack.

Mounties say the encoder and reader are valued at more than $7,000 but are worthless to the suspect and won't gain him access to any of the rooms at the resort or any other establishment that use electronic key-cards.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Kelowna RCMP, Const. De Jong, at 250-762-3300. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, leaving a tip online at or by texting your tip to CRIMES (274637) ktown.
