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.
