The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is still trying to identify a suspect caught on video, but has a little more help in its investigation into a break and entry at the City of Corner Brook depot this past weekend.

The suspect in the break and entry at the public works depot on Charles Street sometime overnight June 21 was captured on surveillance video cameras set up inside the building.

The images of the perpetrator have been circulated to the media and posted on the RNC’s Facebook site, but Const. Scott Mosher, the RNC’s media relations officer, said the person’s identity still had not been confirmed as of press time Wednesday.

The RNC did confirm Wednesday that it had located a City of Corner Brook vehicle that had been reported missing. It is believed the truck was taken at the same time as the break-in.

The truck was located in the Tower Road area off the Lewin Parkway on the western outskirts of the city. The police will examine it for more clues as to who took it.

“There will be some forensic work done on the vehicle and that will be part of this investigation,” Mosher said.

Mosher said the truck appeared to have been simply abandoned and not crashed, but it was too early to say if it had sustained any damage during the incident.

Anyone who has any information in can contact the RNC in Corner Brook at 637-4100 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at. www.nlcrimestoppers.com.
