Even the vending machines aren’t safe in Revelstoke these days.
The Revelstoke RCMP are looking for help after a man stole more than $200 from two hotel vending machines on Thursday, Jan. 7.
The first theft took place at the Alpine Inn, where the suspect removed the lock cylinder of the vending machine and stole about $200 in change and several bottles of Coke.
He then went over to the Days Inn, where he pulled the same trick and made off with an unknown amount of change.
Security footage from the Days Inn may have caught the man and his vehicle in the act.
He is described as being in his mid- to late-50s, with sandy brown hair, and glasses. He was wearing a dark ball cap, black hooded shirt, white shirt with an image on it, and jeans, and had a cross-strap bag. His vehicle appears to be an early-2000s model Chevrolet Venture mini van, silver of beige in colour.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP at 250-837-5255 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
