RCMP are investigating two incidents that occurred at the Ideal Cafe in north Campbell River

RCMP are investigating two incidents that occurred at the Ideal Cafe in north Campbell River.

Last Saturday, around 12:50 p.m., a thief tried to gain entry to the restaurant, located on the North Island Highway, but failed to get inside.

But on Monday, sometime around 2:30 a.m., there was another break-in to the cafe. This time the culprit broke a window, went inside and then fled with a quantity of liquor.

The police dog was unable to track the thief, but did help find additional evidence. RCMP continue to investigate these incidents, as well as an attempted break-in at the Best Buy Liquor Store, located at the Elm Street Plaza on Dogwood Street.

On Sunday, at 8:05 a.m., investigators found the front door damaged, but the culprit had failed to get inside.

And on April 27, at 8:40 p.m., residents in the 600 block of Otter Rd. reported hearing a door being forced open. The resident explored the disruption and discovered the home had been forcibly entered.

A male suspect was then spotted fleeing the scene in an awaiting vehicle. He is described as tall in stature, wearing a balaclava, black sweat shirt, sweat pants and hiking boots.

The suspect fled in an early 1980s Chevrolet pickup, grey and blue in colour.
