Money and lottery tickets stolen from Chuckwagon Market

The Ladysmith RCMP responded to an early-morning break and enter at the Chuckwagon Market Gas 'n Go on Cedar Road Feb. 18.

At approximately 4:30 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 18, the Chuckwagon Market Gas ‘n Go station at 13627 Cedar Rd. was broken into.

Ladysmith RCMP members attended and were able to retrieve surveillance footage of the incident and of the suspects involved. In the footage, two males are seen climbing onto the roof just before 4:30 a.m. and then managing to squeeze through a small window.

There was extensive damage done to the business, and a undisclosed amount of Canadian currency and BC Lotto tickets were stolen.

The two males were wearing black balaclavas and black hoodies, and one of the hoodies had a logo with some writing on the sleeve.

One of the males was tall and thin, while the other was shorter with an average build. A newer-model ivory-coloured four-door car was seen outside the building, and it may be associated with the break in.

The Forensic Identification Unit was utilized, and the local police are continuing their investigation.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Const. Ruppenthal at 250-245-2215 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
