West Kelowna RCMP are looking to identify potential suspects in a commercial break and enter that occurred earlier this month.

On Monday Feb. 4 at 3:30 am, the West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a glass breaking at the Peoples Pharmacy located at 3591 Elliott Road from a glass alarm.

When police arrived, footprints were visible in the snow leading up to a large window that had been smashed so the thief could steal a small amount of cash and an unknown quantity of prescription drugs.
