KAMLOOPS - Crime Stoppers is hoping you can help find a man who allegedly stole from elderly people living in a Kamloops retirement home.

A Kamloops and District Crime Stoppers Facebook post says a man entered a North Shore retirement home on Oct. 15 and is suspected of stealing numerous items from seniors living there.

Crime Stoppers says the "scoundrel" may be proud of himself for the crime, but they are hoping someone can identify him so he can "be accountable for this senseless crime committed on the elderly."

The suspect had a bicycle with him. He was wearing a black ball cap and a black hoodie with "88" on the front sleeves.

If you can identify this man, you're asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. You can also submit a tip here.
