Police seek B & E suspect, stolen truck

Theft of truck and break and enter upstairs at Sullivan Pub likely related

Kimberley RCMP are looking for a white 2006 Ford F-350 truck, which was not only stolen early morning January 20, but is likely related to a break and enter, says RCMP Cpl. Chris Newel.

Newel says Kimberley RCMP received a report of a stolen truck on  the morning of Sunday, January 20 when the owner discovered it missing. A short time later, police received a report of a break and enter to the office of the Sullivan Pub on Ross Street.

“A subject entered an office upstairs of the pub at approximately 4:30 am, “ Newel said. “Once inside, he removed a black fire safe and departed. Video surveillance showed a white pickup truck and police believe it to be the one stolen. The safe only contained personal papers.”

Newel says the suspect may have known the location of the safe.

“I can’t say from the video. But we do believe the person knew it was there because nothing else was touched or stolen.”

Police are asking anybody with information or anyone who sees the vehicle to  please call Kimberley RCMP at 250 427-4811.

The truck has license plate DN9692 and a “Pioneer 107” on the front as an identifier for Forest Service Road use.
