UPDATE: Lethbridge Police have been able to identify the subject in the security camera footage taken at the commercial break-in noted in the earlier release below. While the subject has been identified, he is not yet in custody and the investigation is ongoing.

BACKGROUND

Lethbridge Police are searching for the man responsible for damaging a south side restaurant and stealing valuable electronics.

Police say the unknown man went into Fusion Sushi, located at 1104 Mayor Magrath Dr S., just before 8:00 p.m. last Sunday (Feb. 14), and hid in an area that’s currently under renovation.

Several hour later, when staff closed up for the night and left, the man damaged and removed video cameras, and stole special computer tablets worth more than $10,000, as well as $1,600 in cash. Damage done to the business is estimated at more than $5,000.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
