NEW MINAS NS - Kings District RCMP are seeking assistance from the public to solve three break-and-enters to one business in New Minas.

Between Nov. 18 and Nov. 24, 2016, police responded to three-break-and-enters at Nova Industrial Supplies. Each time, the lone suspect smashed a glass window on the door of the business to gain entry. 

The suspect then took the cash drawer, which contained a quantity of money, and left the business on foot. The last time the suspect attempted to gain entry, it was unsuccessful. No further thefts have occurred since.

All three break-and-enters occurred in the early morning hours between 1 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. It is believed all three incidents are related.

Police are looking to identify and speak with the person in the attached photos. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information or anyone who may know the identity of the person in the attached photos is asked to contact Kings District RCMP at the New Minas office at 902-679-5555 or should you wish to remain anonymous, tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), submitting a secure web tip at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca or texting a tip - Tip 202 + your message to 274637.
