Masset police issue break and enter appeal

  • Feb. 26, 2007 8:00 p.m.

Masset RCMP are appealing to the public to help them figure out who is responsible for a string of break and enters which has been plaguing Masset and Old Massett for the past few weeks.
Over the past weekend (Feb. 24 and 25), there were at least 12 more attempted and actual break-ins to both businesses and homes, said Sgt. Jim Vardy.
Police have arrested three males for break and enter in recent weeks and two have been released back into the community.
Sgt. Vardy said the break-in situation is of great concern to police and solving it is a priority. He asked residents to make sure their doors and windows are locked or otherwise secured. He also advised the public to leave lights on and have someone check their house if they are away, and watch out for anything suspicious.
If anyone has any information, call the Masset detachment at 626-3991.
