Lake Country teen interrupts break and enter

RCMP are looking for a male suspect responsible for breaking into a residence on Teresa Road

A Lake Country resident experienced a scary situation when arriving home Saturday.

At about 9:24 p.m., an 18-year-old girl returned to her Teresa Road home and noticed the silhouette of someone walking inside. She went to a neighbour to call for help.

“The girl’s neighbour attended to the rear of the residence and confronted the suspect male who fled on foot and subsequently dropped the items taken during the residential break-in,” said Const. J.L. O’Donaghey.

Once on scene, RCMP officers determined entry into the home was gained through a rear window.

“Two lap top computers, jewelry, watches, perfume and electronics chargers were taken. All items taken were recovered,” said O’Donaghey.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, about six foot in height, skinny, short brush hut hair with a goatee and wearing a grey hooded sweater, shorts and a T-shirt.

Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call the Lake Country RCMP at 250-766-2288 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
