Hamilton Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect wanted in connection to a commercial break and enter in east Hamilton last month.

According to police, shortly after 2:30 a.m. on April 11, 2022, a man entered an automotive shop near Centennial Parkway and Barton Street by kicking in the business’s garage door.

The suspect then accessed the key dropbox and took the keys for a brown, 2012 Nissan Juke and then fled the area in the stolen car.

On the evening of April 22, police said they were tipped off that a car matching the description of the stolen Nissan was spotted in Dundas and was possibly being driven by an impaired driver.

When police responded to the report a short time later, officers found the stolen car abandoned near Dundas Driving Park and its operator nowhere in sight.

The suspect in the commercial break and enter is described as:

  • In his 20’s
  • Thin/muscular build
  • 5’6″-5’10”
  • Black spring jacket
  • Black pants
  • Black shoes with white sole
  • Clean shaven
  • Short dirty blonde/brown hair

Hamilton Police said they are appealing for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect in these investigations.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Sarah Ricker at 905-546-8938 or Detective Sergeant Andrea Torrie at 905-546-2991.
