Break and enters in Queen Charlotte, Skidegate

  • Dec. 22, 2008 8:00 p.m.

Cash, liquor and food were targeted in a series of break and enters in Queen Charlotte and Skidegate last week. Queen Charlotte RCMP received several reports on Dec. 18 and investigated four residential break and enters and one at Striker’s Lounge. Police initially responded to the call at Striker’s at 6:30 am on Dec. 18. They found the premise insecure, but with no evidence of any entry, says Constable Josh Jamieson. Officers completed a search and confirmed no one was inside. But the officers had to leave before a property representative could be found to secure the building. Shortly thereafter, the suspect(s) returned and entered the building, where the pull tab machine was broken into and a quantity of cash stolen, according to Cnst. Jamieson. Police obtained physical evidence in two of the recent break and enters in hopes of linking a suspect to the crimes, he says. They have identified more than one possible suspect and are still investigating to determine if any of the break and enters are related. No charges have been laid yet and police are asking that anyone with information about these crimes contact the Queen Charlotte RCMP at 559-4421 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
