Coquitlam RCMP are working to identify a man who rented an apartment under a fake name, then made off with almost everything inside.

The apartment’s owner contacted police March 26, shortly after discovering that her tenant was gone — along with the rental property’s appliances, baseboard heaters, fireplace, chandelier and thermostats.

The tenant had been in the apartment for several months, said Const. Deanna Law, but when he didn’t pay his March rent, the landlord eventually entered the unit. That’s when she discovered the extensive theft and damage.

The suspect is described as a white male, about five-feet six inches, with short brown hair, blond highlights and a thick beard. He may go by the fictitious name Corey Lyndon — the name on the fake driver’s licence he used to rent the apartment.

On Wednesday, police investigating the fraud and theft released the photo of Lyndon. Anyone who thinks they recognize the suspect is asked to call the Coquitlam RCMP non-emergency line at 604-945-1550 and ask for Const. Genevieve St-Louis.
