RCMP in Salmon Arm are hoping surveillance footage of a recent break-in at a convenience store will lead to an arrest. 

The break-in happened in the early morning hours of Monday in the Blind Bay area of Highway 1.

The break-in happened during a power outage caused by a brief, but powerful storm. 

However, police say the surveillance was not affected by the power outage. 

The thief made off with a number of items including a display of pocket knives, lottery tickets and cigarettes.

"The RCMP is following up with the store owner and BC Lotto at this time," stated Staff Sgt. Scott West. "RCMP investigators are also reviewing video footage from the store which was unaffected by the power outage to determine if a picture of the culprit exists."

If you feel that you have information please call the Salmon Arm RCMP at (250) 832 6044 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)
