Police are still trying to identify a thief who stole a laptop from St. Mary’s Parish last summer.

After finding a laptop in a closed cabinet, surveillance images show that he calmly sat down and had a smoke break at the church’s piano.

The thief had wandered in on the afternoon of Aug. 24 before stealing the laptop. In the images, he is wearing baggy dark shorts and a bright blue t-shirt. In one image, he is sitting at a covered piano in the corner of the church, smoking a cigarette.

The information about the theft was originally released in September, but police are still searching for the man. Anyone with information can contact police at 604-792-4611, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
