Investigators with the Victoria Police Department are looking for a suspect related to a break and enter that occurred in Esquimalt Tuesday afternoon.

A neighbour spotted an unknown male leaving the home, who is believed to be the suspect in the incident.

He is described as a Caucasian male in his early 20’s, wearing a black baseball cap with a white emblem on it, a dark, baggy jacket and noticeably bright orange or yellow running shoes.

The suspect was last seen in the 500-block of Lampson Street around noon Tuesday.
