Halifax District RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect who recently targeted three local businesses in Hammonds Plains.
Just before 10 p.m. on April 19, a male suspect attempted to break in to the Edible Matters Restaurant on Hammonds Plains Rd. but was not successful. The suspect then proceeded to the Tim Horton’s on Kingswood Dr. and Hammonds Plains Rd. where he gained access to a storage shed. It’s unknown if anything was taken.
At approximately 11:30 p.m. on April 19, the suspect proceeded to target a third business, the Kingswood Market. A surveillance camera there captured the suspect approaching the rear entrance carrying a pizza. The suspect spent two hours trying to pry open the door and was able to gain access at approximately 1:30 a.m. The suspect entered the business and stole various energy drink products and chocolate milk before leaving.
The suspect was wearing a camouflage jacket with a hood, jeans and rubber boots.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact Halifax District RCMP at 902-490-5020.
