Note to prospective thieves: wearing a towel while trying car door handles late at night will likely catch someone’s attention.
Such was the case last week, when White Rock police were called to investigate a suspicious person matching just such a description in the 13600-block of Malabar Avenue.
The call came in just after 11 p.m. Nov. 21.
Police who responded located a towel-wearing suspect in a nearby convenience store.
Const. Janelle Shoihet said the man, who was fully dressed, told police he had the towel because he was on the way to the pool.
Michael Reeves, a 34-year-old Surrey man, is facing charges of theft, possession of stolen property and possession of break-in instruments.
He remains in custody, and is due back in court on Dec. 4.
