Crime Stoppers needs your help in solving the following crime:

On Saturday July 14th at 4:50 pm, an unknown suspect stole some equipment from an electronics store located in the 3500 block of Johnston Rd.

The suspect walked into the store and proceeded to walk around looking at various items. The suspect then selected two pairs of high end headphones as well as a Bluetooth speaker removing them from their shelves by defeating the security measures used to fasten them to the shelves. After concealing the items, the suspect then walked out of the store without paying for them. The man’s actions were captured on CCTV cameras.

The suspect is described as a Caucasian man in his 20’s to 30’s with a slim build, having short light coloured hair and a handle bar moustache. The man was wearing a black button up shirt, brown pants, brown shoes and a grey baseball cap. The suspect appears to have a tattoo on the inside of his left forearm.

A photo of the suspect can be found on the Alberni Valley Crime Stoppers website.
