Police are looking for information on a suspect in numerous break and enters.

The Wetaskiwin RCMP are requesting the public’s assistance in identify a suspect in several break and enters on December 18th, 2015.

At approximately 4:00 AM on December 18th, 2015 police were called to a break and entre at Leanne’s Bar and Grill on 50th Avenue in Millet. A passer-by noticed the door was broken and called police right away. Police attended, but the suspect was gone. Footage from the business shows what appears to be a male dressed in light winter gear with fur on the hood, and a black balaclava. The male appeared to be carrying a large crow bar. Surveillance also showed a white, 4-door, Dodge Dakota.

Later that morning at around 8:00 AM another citizen was walking on 50th Avenue and noticed the glass smashed out of the door at Young’s Restaurant that has been closed for some time. Police were called, and while they were on their way they were informed that the glass of the door at This That and Everything was also broken. Police cleared both buildings.

That evening at 8:00 PM police were called by a concerned citizen in Wetaskiwin after an incident at the Outreach School at 48th Street and 50th Avenue. The caller was driving on 50th Avenue when they noticed someone at the door of the building wearing a dark balaclava carrying a large crow bar. The caller honked his horn. The suspect responded by pulling off the balaclava, jumping into the truck, speeding off west bound. The caller described the truck as a white crew cab. The male was described as Caucasian, 24 – 30 years old, and had dark hair.

Police are investigating these matters as possibly the same suspect. If you have any information on these incidences, or the suspect described, please call the local RCMP at 780-312-7200. If you want to remain anonymous you can provide information to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477) or online at www.tipsubmit.com .
