RCMP are looking for more victims in a mischief case.

An adult caucasian male has been reported to be knocking on the doors of local residents and asking for cash or food for various reasons. Stories from victims range from the man reporting he had a snowmobile breakdown to running out of gas and forgetting his wallet.

The suspect then asks for some money or food and reports vary from requests for $5 to $20. Once obtaining the money, he then leaves, sometimes promising to return to pay the money back, which he does not do.

The RCMP have collected several reports from victims, but believe there may be more victims out there and would like to continue to strengthen their case and locate these other possible victims.

Anyone who has further information on the suspect and has had a similar incident, is asked to call the Fort St. James RCMP at 996-8269.

RCMP are currently seeking a warrant for the suspect’s arrest in relation to the incidents.
