RX Drug Mart in Ladysmith was the victim of a break and enter on Sunday night.
Surveillance video shows a suspect carrying a backpack who appears to be in his mid-twenties dressed in a ball cap, tee shirt, and jeans.
The suspect used a crowbar to break the front window which set off the store’s alarm immediately. After entering through the broken window, the thief stole mainly confection items like chips, and chocolate bars before fleeing the scene.
Costs to replace the window totalled around $1,500, and the cost of stolen items was less than $100.
Ladysmith RCMP responded to the scene. Officers took fingerprints, and blood samples from traces left behind on the broken glass. Ladysmith RCMP Cpl. Dave Fish confirmed an investigation is ongoing.
