PRINCE GEORGE, BC: Police are asking for the public’s help following a Break and Enter Friday morning on the Hart…
Police say the incident occurred at an occupied residence on Tasa Place, in the Hart Highlands area.
An adult female resident of the home found an unknown male inside her entranceway with her purse in his hands. The female grabbed the purse and pushed the suspect out the front door. The initial call to police was made to the non-emergency line, slowing police response. No injuries were reported and it appears nothing was taken. Patrols for the suspect were negative.
The suspect is described as:
- Caucasian male
- Thin build
- Short dirty blonde hair
- Wearing a royal blue golf shirt, black pants and a black lanyard with what appeared to be an ID tag.
Although it has not been confirmed, investigators are looking into the possibility that the suspect was posing as a door to door solicitor. The investigation is continuing.
Police would like to remind the public:
- Always lock your doors, even when you are at home;
- Immediately call 9-1-1 when an incident occurs;
- Be sure to request to see identification of any door to door solicitors. Legitimate sales persons will have identification and will provide you with their name.
There are a number of door to door sales persons in our community at the moment, and they will be expected throughout the summer.
If you have any information about this incident, please contact the Prince George RCMP at (250)561-3300 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1(800)222-8477.
