Suspect sought after theft at Lake Country business

On Oct. 5 at about 12:30 p.m., a male suspect entered the Winfield Coin Laundry on Highway 97.

Lake Country RCMP are trying to identify a suspect after a theft at a coin laundry.

Police are looking to identify an individual after money was stolen from a Lake Country coin dispensing machine.

On Oct. 5 at about 12:30 p.m., a male suspect entered the Winfield Coin Laundry on Highway 97.

“Video surveillance appears to show the suspect using a technique called stringing on the currency change machine,” said Const. Kris Clark.

“The technique essentially tricks the machine into dispensing coins even though no bills are deposited in return. The man spent several minutes stringing coins before he was confronted by other patrons and left in a silver Dodge SUV.”

Anyone with any information on this incident is asked to contact the Lake Country RCMP at 250-766-2288 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
