RCMP in Kimberley are seeking the assistance of the public in identifying a vehicle and associated persons related to a series of crimes taking place on May 3 on the ski hill in Kimberley.

The vehicle was first identified only as very loud after it backed into a parked vehicle at the North Star Resort at 12:30 a.m.  After that, a garage was broken into on Aspen Way at 1 a.m.

Then at 2 a.m. a bicycle was taken from a carport on Dewdney Way.  The bicycle is a 21-speed European-made Commencal Essence mountain bike, black in colour with a yellow/blue seat and is  very distinct looking.

It is unknown if the crimes are related, however their geographical and time proximity indicate that the same person or persons may be responsible for all three incidents.

The only descriptors on the suspect is that the associated vehicle was extremely loud.

If anyone has any information about this or any other crime they can call the Kimberley RCMP at 250-427-4811; the Cranbrook  RCMP at 250-489-3471, or East Kootenay Crimestoppers (1-800-222-TIPS)
