Liquor Stores Targets of Smash and Grabs
Prince George, B.C. – Prince George RCMP are hoping the public can aid them in identifying the suspects in three break and enters to private liquor stores in Prince George.
The most recent happened around 1:30 this morning on Cowart Road ( see previous story), where it appears a vehicle was driven into the building to gain access. Suspects and the vehicle were gone before police arrived on scene.
It is the third Break and Enter to a liquor store since Sunday March 19th, and the second in which a vehicle was used to gain entry.
At approximately 4:30 AM on Sunday March 19th, the Prince George RCMP received a report of a Break & Enter at a liquor store on Highway 97 near Northwood Pulpmill Road in Prince George. Officers arrived and found that the window was smashed and a small amount of liquor had been stolen.
Just before 6:00 AM on Tuesday March 21st, 2017, the Prince George RCMP responded to a report of a Break & Enter at a liquor store on Monterey Road in Prince George. Two suspects were captured on surveillance using a vehicle to gain entry to the business and then stealing several bottles of liquor.
Police are aware of the similarities in these incidents and are alive to the possibility that all three were committed by the same persons. The investigation is continuing and officers are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the persons responsible.
Anyone with information that might assist in this investigation is asked to contact Prince George RCMP at 250-561-3300 or Crime Stoppers at -800-222-8477.
close down the liquor stores…problem solved
Don’t they have cages at the door??
Is it just me or are the police looking for a lot of help lately? Maybe if we paid them more they could afford to do their own investigations.
Full of it today, ain’t yuh? LMAO!
Canvassing the public for information is part of an investigation … or would you rather they play pin the tail on the donkey? blindfolded?
Well if that’s your attitude, perhaps you could help me with my paper route.
When you privatize liquor outlets these are the risks you take when you do not have a proper security. Can you imagine if they were selling weed. Put the liquor sales back in government outlets where things are more secure and employees can be paid a living wage.
Take away from small business? No.
Just what we need, more Government employees sucking of the teat and going on strike every year for more, more , more!
