Barriere RCMP are asking the public for assistance in identifying a suspect who attempted to break into the local liquor store.
At about 1:20 a.m. on Friday, May 20, Barriere RCMP responded to a report of a break and enter in progress at the BC Liquor Store on Barriere Town Road. The police dog service was called in to assist.
When they arrived, police noted someone had tried to break into the business but they were unsuccessful and the building was damaged as a result. Video surveillance has been obtained and shows a suspect trying to gain entry.
A side view of the suspect is available and is described as a possibly Caucasian man wearing a black baseball cap with a white logo on the front. He is wearing a white baklava, though the pattern is not able to be determined from the footage. The suspect appeared to be wearing a red T-shirt with dark jeans and black shoes with white soles.
If anyone has any information about the attempted break in or can identify the person they are asked to contact the Barriere RCMP detachment at (250) 672-9918.
