The RCMP is hoping the community can help identify some theft suspects.
Police say on June 12th they responded to a report of missing solar lights near Soderholm Road. After speaking with the homeowner, police believe another set of solar lights were smashed at the corner of Soderholm Road and Apple Drive.
The owner did have high definition cameras on his property which were able to take photos of the suspects, including one that had a hoodie with a reflective number 15 on the back of it.
Campbell River RCMP Constable Maury Tyre says officers just want to speak with the kids and hope someone can help identity them.
“In terms of events such as these,” said Cst Maury Tyre, “we typically like to deal with the youth involved in a restorative fashion without involving courts. We recognize that Facebook may be far too old school for many young people in town as well as newspapers for our press releases, but we’re hoping a parent or guardian recognizes the hoodie and believes that their child should be held to account. We do have better images of faces, but would prefer not to see young faces go out in public to identify them.”
The RCMP is asking if you know the young men involved in this incident, to speak with them and ask them to take responsibility for their actions.
If you have information or other video that may help us identify these youth, call the Campbell River RCMP at 250-286-6221.
