Nanaimo RCMP are hoping the distinct swagger of a hooded suspect at the Cassidy Country Kitchen earlier this week will lead to an arrest.
“This suspect has a distinct gait which should be helpful in identifying him,” said Const. Gary O’Brien.
Security footage from the patio of the Trans-Canada Highway eatery shows a man pulling the hood of his black sweatshirt over his head as he walks quickly up the the front door.
After violently throwing the rock at the front door several times, the glass door smashes and the male goes inside.
The time of the incident was just before 4 a.m. early Monday morning and police believe the same suspect broke into Cassidy Country Kitchen in January and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
In this case the man grabbed a few bottles of hard liquor and some mix and proceeds to flee on foot northbound along the merge lane of the highway.
