Resident confronts hungry burglar in the Big Eddy

Revelstoke RCMP are asking for help identifying a burglar who roused a Big Eddy resident from bed early Monday morning.

A Big Eddy resident was roused from bed just after 4:30 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 20 after hearing noises inside his home.

Upon investigating, the man discovered an intruder in his home located on Highway 23 South.

“When the homeowner confronted the male he asked what it is he wanted,” said Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen in a statement. “The unknown male indicated he wanted food, then he ran off.”

The homeowner and police subsequently searched the area but were unable to locate the suspect.

Nothing was damaged or stolen. Police believe the man entered the home through an unlocked door.

Olsen said there was no violence or threats of violence involved in the incident.

Police are seeking public help locating the intruder. He is described as a white male with blonde hair, aged about 25, wearing jeans, a long-sleeved shirt and work gloves.

“Police would like to remind you that all doors should be locked when not at home and at night time,” Olsen said in a statement. “During hot weather even the ground floor windows should be secured to ensure unwanted guest do not gain entry.”

If anyone has any information as to the identity of this male, they are asked to contact the Revelstoke RCMP detachment as 250-837-5255 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
