Phone theft suspect uploads selfie

The Nanaimo RCMP is asking for the public's assistance with two recent thefts. The first involves the theft of an I-phone and purse in the 600 block of Kennedy St, where the suspect in his infinite wisdom uploaded a picture of himself. The second consisted of $20,000 of para-gliding equipment stolen from a vehicle on Sealion Place. The owner of the stolen equipment lives in New Zealand and is devastated by the loss.

On July 5th, the owner of the I-phone told police, she was in the process of carrying garbage to a nearby disposal bin. She left her purse beside her vehicle while carrying the garbage and as she was carrying the garbage, she looked back and saw a male near her vehicle. When she returned her purse and the male seen were long gone. 

The next day she obtained a new phone. When the phone was activated, pictures were automatically uploaded and one was of the male seen by her purse just before it went missing.

The second consisted of $20,000 of para-gliding equipment stolen from a vehicle on Sealion Place. The owner of the stolen equipment lives in New Zealand and is devastated by the loss.

The para-gliding theft occurred on July 13, and involved a rental vehicle being broken into and stolen were two complete para-gliding packs. The owner reported the following items missing- a Samsung phone, tents, poles, foldable hiking poles, a GPS instrument, a hand-held radio and a blue and black Advance harness. The owner of the equipment has reached out to the para-gliding community and has gone to all pawn shops in Nanaimo, with no success.
