On Sunday January 10, 2021 at 3:49 am Sunshine Coast RCMP were dispatched to an alarm call at the Smokelord Tobacco Shop at 5536 Wharf Avenue in Sechelt.

The suspect was seen on surveillance video prying the deadbolt lock off the front door, entering and stealing $1200 worth of retail products.  The suspect was wearing black pants, black jacket with the hood pulled up, baseball hat and a camouflage backpack.

With the help of other local businesses in the area with surveillance cameras, Shaymus Moore aged 44 was arrested without incident on January 11.  A search warrant was executed on his vehicle and almost all of the product was recovered by police.

Moore is well known to police and has been charged with Break and Enter.

"Having surveillance cameras can not only help protect your business, but can assist police in solving other crimes in the area.  The assistance of other local retailers with good quality video surveillance, was crucial in aiding police with the quick arrest of this suspect." said Cpl. Stacey Robinson.
