The thefts happened on the evening of Dec. 6. Security camera footage shows a man taking a framed print off the lobby wall and carrying it out of the downtown hotel's front doors.

Almost five hours later, just before midnight, three people arrived through the same doors and took another print. Police say the person who removed it appears to be the same man who stole the other print, earlier.

RCMP are asking anybody with information to contact them.
