Sylvan Lake RCMP are seeking the assistance in identifying a suspect who was involved in a rash of property related crime in Eckville over the weekend.

At least four houses were broken into and vehicle keys and wallets stolen. The residences were unlocked and people were in the homes sleeping at the time. As a result, four vehicles were stolen. Two have since been recovered in Red Deer, said RCMP Cst. Rod Johnson.

The suspect also entered several unlocked vehicles and removed purses and wallets. He then used or attempted to use stolen credit cards at locations in Red Deer and Blackfalds on Saturday morning.

The man was caught on numerous surveillance videos. He is described as being in his 20s, short dark hair with slight side burns. He may have some missing front teeth. He was wearing a black zip up hoodie, blue jeans and sun glasses on his head. He was seen driving a grey or lighter coloured Jeep Grand Cherokee.

If you can identify this person, please contact Sylvan Lake RCMP at 403-858-7200 or call CRIMESTOPPERS at 1-888-222-TIPS (8477).
