Police in Kamloops are probing a series of burglaries in the Southgate commercial business area — break-ins during which not a lot was reported stolen.

Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Mathias Van Laer said officers responded to four separate break-and-enter calls in the McGill Road/Dalhousie Drive area on Monday (Sept. 21) between 11:15 p.m. and 11:50 p.m.

In each case, a glass door was broken to gain entry, but very little is reported to have been stolen — in some cases, perhaps nothing at all.

Van Laer said images of a suspect was captured on surveillance video.

"It's too early to say that the same suspect would be responsible for all of those incidents, but investigations are ongoing and it's certainly a possibility,” Van Laer said. “"We are hoping to have a better idea once the videos from all the different locations are collected.”

The suspect in the video is white and was wearing a black hoodie and carrying a red and white backpack.

Anybody with information on the burglaries is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
