A man wanted in connection to a break in at Portage's Oak Tree Apartments is believed to have been captured on CCTV at a nearby 7/11 prior to the incident.

Security officers on scene claim the kitchen had been rifled through with cupboards, fridges and freezers all ransacked.
The suspect is described as an Indigenous male, approximately 6-foot in height with a medium build and was last seen wearing a black jacket, red shirt, ball cap, and riding a mountain bike.
