Second suspect sought in connection with Sylvan Lake condo parkade break in

Sylvan Lake RCMP have arrested one man in connection with a break and enter into a condominium parkade and are trying to identify a second suspect in the case.

Sylvan Lake RCMP have arrested one man in connection with a break and enter into a condominium parkade and are trying to identify a second suspect in the case.

RCMP were called to the Fairway Estates Condominium Building in Sylvan for a break and enter on Sunday.

Two suspects had allegedly broken into the parkade in the early morning hours and rummaged through unlocked vehicles and stealing items. They also broke into storage lockers. They were there for over an hour.

The suspects and their vehicle were caught on video and police were able to identify the vehicle. That led them to identifying, arresting and charging one of the suspects.

The second suspect is yet to be identified and police are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying him. RCMP have released a photo of the second suspect in hopes that someone will recognize him and call police.

He is described as likely being in his 50s, average height and build, a greying beard, wearing blue jeans and a medium dark jacket. He may have ties to the Calgary area as well.

The first suspect arrested is identified as Chance Tosh Muranaka, 42, of Sylvan Lake. He has been charged with break and enter and theft, mischief, theft under $5,000 and three breaches of previous release conditions.

He appeared in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday and will appear again on Jan. 6.

Police are asking anyone who may have information regarding this crime or the identity of the second suspect to contact Sylvan Lake RCMP at 403-858-7200.

If you want to remain anonymous, you can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or online at www.tipsubmit.com. You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers, and if you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest(s), you may be eligible for a cash reward.
