Olds RCMP search for break and enter suspect

Olds RCMP are hoping to track down a suspect who broke into a home on Wednesday.

In the early morning hours of Jan. 26, a homeowner had observed a light on in the detached garage and when the home owner opened the door, a man was observed attempting to remove items. The suspect then threw one of the items he was holding at the home owner and fled the scene empty-handed down the alley.

The suspect is described as five-foot-nine, with a “bodybuilder” type build and appeared to be in his mid-30s. He has blonde hair, and shaved sides of the head with center portion spiked.

He was wearing a black sweater with white lettering and black sweat pants.
