Liquor Thief Targets Local Business

The Urban Liquor Store in Kelowna has been dealing with an unwanted presence as of late.

Security cameras filmed the suspect stealing two bottles of rum, valued at around $125 by stuffing them into his jacket before leaving the store.

A Facebook post from the store warned other liquor stores in the area to watch out for the suspect, as he could be stealing from other locations as well.

A spokesperson for the store says this wasn't the first time the man has stolen from Urban Liquor, as he had reportedly stolen bottles of spirits the week before as well.

Anyone with information of the identity of the suspect is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at (250) 762-3300 or remain anonymous by leaving a tip with Crime Stoppers at (250) 470 6215.
