Powell River RCMP is looking into two attempted break-and-enters that they believe are related.

Police attended the scene and found that the male was not able to gain access to the building.
Later that morning, they responded to an attempted break-in at the Cranberry Barber Shop (6762 Cranberry Street). Entry was again not successful.
The suspect is described as a 5’8″ male who was wearing, according to police, dark pants, a light jacket and ball cap.
He was last seen walking behind the Mountainview Apartments.
