Stolen card encoder useless

Investigators are asking for public assistance in identifying the suspect in a mid-March break in.

On March 16, police received a report of a break and enter that had occurred the previous day at the Mission Shores Resort located at 3880 Truswell Road.

An unknown male suspect entered the unlocked common rooms of the resort and broke into the adjoining manager's office. The suspect gathered several items before fleeing the scene on a small BMX bicycle.

The suspect is described as:

  • Caucasian male
  • Short black hair and sideburns
  • Wearing a camouflage jacket over a black hoodie, dark pants, a black backpack and white ball cap

Items stolen include:

  • Vingcard model 2100 key-card encoder
  • 6 Vingcard key-card readers
  • Guitar
  • First Aid Kit

The Vingcard encoder and reader together are valued at over $7000 but are virtually worthless to the suspect and will not gain him access to any rooms in the resort or any other establishment with electronic key-cards.

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