Prince George RCMP are asking the public’s assistance in identifying a male and a female suspect who cashed in stolen lottery tickets in Williams Lake and other B.C. cities.

According to Cpl. Craig Douglas, police believe the two are also responsible for the theft of lottery tickets from a vehicle in Prince George.

On the morning of April 5, 2016 the Prince George RCMP received a report of a theft from a motor vehicle on St. Frances Crescent in Prince George.

Officers attended the residence and learned that sometime between 9 p.m. on April 4 and 6 a.m. on April 5, someone had entered an unlocked vehicle parked outside a residence on St. Frances Crescent in the College Heights area of Prince George.

An unknown person or persons stole more than $6,500 in winning lottery tickets.

Through investigation, officers learned that the tickets were cashed in various locations in Prince George, Quesnel, Williams Lake and Chilliwack.

Video surveillance images have been obtained and investigators are now releasing the images to the public in the hopes of identifying the two suspects and the distinctive vehicle they were believed to have been driving.

The male suspect is described as a Caucasian male approximately 30 to 40 years old, 170 centimetres (5’7) in height with short brown hair. He was wearing a grey Under Armour hoody with bright orange on the inside of the hood, dark pants and a brown ball cap.

The female suspect is described as possibly Caucasian, approximately 20 to 30 years old and 165 centimetres (5’5) in height with long brown hair and wearing a dark hoody and grey pants.

The vehicle they were driving is described as a Chevrolet or GMC tan or grey extended cab truck with a homemade white-tarped canopy with the West Fraser Timber Company logo on the side.

Although the canopy looks similar to those used by tree planters, it is believed to be homemade.

The image on the side of the canopy is of the West Fraser Timber Company logo. This logo appears on the plastic wood coverings on many of their products.
