Crime Stoppers and Halifax Regional Police are seeking the public’s assistance to identify a person of interest who is believed to have broken into vehicles at a hockey rink last month in Bedford.
On October 27 at approximately 4:50 p.m., police received a complaint from an off-duty RCMP officer that her van was broken into and her purse, which contained her wallet as well as her RCMP badge, had been stolen while she was at the Rocky Lake Dome located at 44 Verdi Drive.
Police are releasing photos of a man believed to have broken into the van as well as another car where the back passenger window was broken and an iPad was stolen that same afternoon. He’s described as a young white man with short, light-coloured hair and scruff on his face. He was driving a black or dark purple two-door Honda Civic hatchback with a large spoiler and silver edged black rims.
The suspect enters the rink twice that afternoon between 4:15 and 4:40 p.m., at one point returning to the Honda Civic and moving it to a different parking spot. The first time, he’s wearing sunglasses on his head, an orange hoodie with a blue Under Armour logo, blue jeans and black sneakers with white soles. The second time, he’s wearing a black hoodie with a small white crest on the front and a white ball cap.
Police are asking the man or anyone who can identify the suspect, the suspect’s vehicle and/or who has any information on this incident to contact police by calling 902-490-5020.
