Halifax police seek help in finding Bedford vehicle break-ins suspect

Photos released by Halifax police show a suspect and vehicle said to be involved in the break-ins of vehicles at the Rocky Lake Dome in Bedford, Thursday, Oct. 27, 2016.

Halifax police are asking for the public’s help in finding a man they believe broke into vehicles at a Bedford hockey rink last month.

Police received a complaint from an off-duty RCMP officer at approximately 4:50 p.m. on Oct. 27 that her van was broken into and her purse, which contained both her wallet and RCMP badge, had been stolen. She had been parked at the Rocky Lake Dome at 44 Verdi Dr.

The man is believed to have broken into another vehicle through the back passenger window and stolen an iPad the same afternoon.

The suspect is described as a young white man with short, light-coloured hair and scruff on his face, driving a black or dark purple two-door Honda Civic hatchback which had silver-edged black rims and a large spoiler.

Police say the man entered the rink twice between 4:15 and 4:40 p.m. He is said to have returned to the Honda to move it to a different parking spot at one point in the afternoon.
