Vandals broke into two churches in Port Clements over the weekend, causing some damage and stealing two guitars. Masset RCMP Const. Jonathan Fischer said the first break and enter was reported on July 30. Sometime between July 28 and 29, he said, someone broke into St. Mark’s Church and damaged the church’s bible, as well as the Remembrance Day wreaths stored there. On July 31, police received a report that Cedarview Church had been broken into. This break-in is believed to have occurred overnight between July 30 and 31, Const. Fischer said. The vandal or vandals took two bass guitars from the church. Both incidents are under investigation. “We are looking at some possible suspects,” Const. Fischer said. If anyone has information about either break-in, contact the Masset RCMP at 250-626-3991.
