A number of cars broken into at a Merritt apartment building.
 
Merritt RCMP Cst Tracy Dunsmore confirms they received a number of calls this morning about someone breaking into vehicles at the VIBE apartments on Menzies St.
 
"One lady's windshield was smashed, but it doesn't look like they got into the vehicle. And, there was another vehicle parked that somebody jimmied the door and punched the lock, but again they were unable to take the vehicle."
 
A suspect wearing a green jacket and hat was caught on video surveillance, but officers were unable to locate them once on scene and currently have no suspects.
 
With there being a noticeable spike in break-ins within the City of Merritt in recent weeks, Dunsmore is asking people to be extra vigilant, and report anyone suspicious to Merritt RCMP or Crimestoppers.
