Whitehorse RCMP are on the lookout for a man who made off with $800 worth of prints taken from the Yukon Inn on Dec. 6.

Two First Nation art prints, each worth $400 according to police, were taken from the front entrance lobby leading to the Boiler Room restaurant.

CCTV footage released by the police shows the first theft occuring after 7:10 p.m. In the video a man is seen taking the print off the wall and walking out the front door with it.

The video shows the second theft taking place around 11:55 p.m. that same night, with three people coming in the same entrance.

A man, who the RCMP suspect to be the same person who stole the first print, takes the second print off the wall and leaves with two other people.
