Calgary police issued a public appeal earlier this month, saying Robert Wellingford is wanted in connection to a series of break and enters that date back to 2010.
Police say many of the crimes involved the culprit breaking into a store within a strip mall and smashing through drywall in order to get into neighbouring businesses.
Police now believe Wellingford, who is also known as Robert McLaughlin, may be in B.C.
The 53-year-old suspect is described as being six-foot-one and weighing roughly 225 pounds.
He has blonde hair and hazel eyes, and walks with a slight limp. (CKFR)
