Masked suspect breaks in to West Shore coffee shop on New Year’s Eve

West Shore RCMP investigate theft from Eagle Creek Village Tim Hortons

While many were still tied up with their New Year’s Eve plans, one individual decided to ring in the new year a different way.

West Shore RCMP are investigating after an overnight break-and-enter at the Eagle Creek Village Tim Hortons in View Royal during the early hours of Jan. 1.

Police said surveillance video shows a lone male broke into the store at about 12:18 a.m.

The suspect was wearing a black hoody, black jeans, grey shoes, orange gloves and a face mask.

Police said approximately $200 in cash was stolen as well as several mugs and coffee products.

“Police have canvassed the area and the investigation remains active to identify a suspect,” said Cpl. Chris Dovell of West Shore RCMP.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to contact West Shore RCMP at 250-474-2264 or anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
