On Dec. 28 at approximately 2:50 a.m. Sunshine Coast RCMP were dispatched to an alarm at the Sunshine Coast Pet Hospital in Sechelt.

"Patrols were made in the area as it was discovered that a suspect gained entry to the building," said media spokesperson Cpl. Steve Chubey. "All medications were accounted for and it appeared that the suspect used one of the computers to access pornography websites."

Chubey said RCMP were later dispatched to a second break and enter at Rent-it Canada in Sechelt.

"Video surveillance and witness reports show that a male suspect had broken into the Sunshine Coast Pet Hospital then broke into Rent-it Canada, where the suspect tried to steal a bicycle before being scared off," added Chubey.

Sunshine Coast RCMP are asking that anyone with information on one or both of these break-ins, call the RCMP at 604-885-2266 or BC Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
