Four firearms and ammunition were stolen early morning June 13 from the Canadian Tire store in Oliver.

RCMP explained in a release Tuesday that on June 13 around 3:30 a.m., a male suspect broke the glass front door to Canadian Tire and proceeded to steal four firearms as well as ammunition from a locked cabinet.

Video surveillance shows the man fleeing out the same front door and into a parked car where another male driver was waiting.
