A late-night snack set off the alarm at the Central Station Pub just after midnight Sunday night.
When the owner checked on the alarm he found a man in the bar and food area making himself at home, Kamloops RCMP said in a press release. He fled without taking anything.
A broken window at 2 a.m. at Frankly Coffee is likely the work of the same person, police say.
He is described as "a younger Caucasian male with dark clothes."
