Police are requesting the assistance of the public in attempting to locate a suspect described as a white male, mid 20s, approximately six feet tall, medium build, light colored hair and ‘goatee’ and is traveling in a grey/silver Chevrolet / GMC extended pick truck in the Williams Lake area.

The suspect is actively going into businesses asking for cigarettes and other merchandise, then when the business owner produces the items, the suspect grabs the items and runs from the store shouting that he is ‘sorry.'
