Prince Rupert RCMP seek public's help in recent B and E downtown

The Prince Rupert RCMP has once again called on the public for some assistance, this time related to man April Break in at the Argosy on Third Avenue West.

In their notes today the Mounties of the Prince Rupert Detachment relay some background to the incident and the call for help in locating someone they have identified as a suspect.

On April 25th, 2022 at approximately 10:00 a.m. the door of The Argosy, an antique furniture store located in the 500 block of 3rd Ave W, was noticed to have its glass broken. 

It was determined that entry was made into the store front. Upon inventory being taken by the owner she noticed that her personal laptop, a hard drive and her laptop bag had all been taken.

As part of the information relay, the Prince Rupert RCMP also have provided a number of images to help in the identification work.

"Property crime, including theft, is something our front line officers are working hard to combat. We have heard the frustrations of the business owners and residents of Prince Rupert. Providing CCTV footage in timely manner, item descriptions, including any possible identifying numbers help us greatly in our investigations and down the road in laying charges." -- Constable Brody Hemrich, Prince Rupert RCMP

As part of the information release today Constable Hemrich added: 

"Familiarizing yourself, as well as for business owners, your employees, on how to access CCTV footage and copy it onto a disc/storage device is key. I know in many of my own investigations gathering CCTV footage can be a major barrier as police officers are not always aware of how to pull footage from every device or system."

If you know the man pictured above please call the Prince Rupert RCMP at 250-627-0700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
