Sweat Pea Quilting located on Roberts St. was broken into. A pry bar was used to open a door. The culprit(s) took approximately $3 in quarters from the till. There was some damage to the door frame from where it was pried. Anyone having any information is asked to contact the RCMP at (250) 245-2215.

Sometime between 1:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m., someone took $400 worth of oil from the storage container near the pump of the Coronation Mall Mid-Island Co-op gas station. The person pried open the cover and took several bottles of oil. They then replaced the cover and left. The thief came back an hour later and did the same thing, stealing more oil. The thief was on surveillance wearing black pants, black hoodie, and black gloves.

A window on a van was broken in the 700 block of Malone Rd. The driver’s side window had been broken. There was a small chip mark at the top of the window and a large hole in the window halfway down and the edges of the window were broken. Police believe a stone from the road may have hit the window causing it to break. The van was parked in a stall next to the roadway.  The vehicle doors had been unlocked prior to the damage and nothing was missing or disturbed inside the van.
