RCMP around the Okanagan would like to identify this suspect for various thefts.  On November 8th 2019, members in Lake Country were called by a local pharmacy when staff noticed thousands of dollars of perfume missing from the shelves.  Video surveillance shows this person of interest entering the store and filling a reusable shopping bag with 27 boxes of expensive perfume.  The male quickly walked past the till without offering payment.   The male is also suspected of an approximate $1000 liquor theft in the North Okanagan and another liquor theft in West Kelowna.

Sometime during the early hours of November 12, 2019, suspects pried off a rear basement patio door of a newly constructed and as of yet unoccupied home on the 13,400 block of Derek Trethewey Drive in Lake Country.  Once inside the suspects cut the water and gas line to the on-demand water heater before prying it off the wall, leaving the basement flooded and gas-filled.  The water heater unit is a high efficiency Navien NPE-2405N6 with serial number 7417F18Z1771340.  The thieves also took some sporting equipment from the garage.
