RCMP are seeking any information from the public regarding a man who stole four firearms and ammunition from the Oliver Canadian Tire.

On June 13, at 3:30 a.m., RCMP say a male suspect broke the glass front door to the store. The RCMP released a press release 10 days later on June 23 asking for the public’s assistance in locating the man caught on store security.

Once inside the store, the man was able to enter a locked firearms cabinet, grabbing four firearms along with ammunition. He then fled out the same front door, and into a parked car where another male driver was waiting.

The firearms stolen are a Mossberg Patriot Night Train 300, bolt action, Mossberg Maverick hinge action shotgun, Ruger 10-22 .22 rifle, and Savage Model Rascal Target .22 bolt action rifle.

The Oliver RCMP is requesting anyone with information to contact them at 250-498-3422, or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
