The Nanaimo RCMP is asking for the public’s help to identify a male who stole a pair of runners from NUKO, a local organization which supports children with neurological differences. The incident occurred between 3 am and 5 am on May 15th, 2020 from their business located at 60 Needham St.

Police obtained video surveillance which showed a male using a long stick to fish out and grab hold of the runners. After many attempts the suspect managed to hook onto one pair of Nike high-tops and a singe running shoe. The male whose face could not be seen was wearing bright red running shoes.

If anyone has information on the identity of this individual, please contact the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345.
