The Masset RCMP detachment was called out to investigate two more break-ins over the weekend.
Just after 4:30 am Saturday (March 17), the front door of the Delmas Co-op was smashed and a quantity of cigarettes stolen, Sgt. Jim Vardy said.
Police found a shoe imprint in the snow but were unable to follow the tracks, he said.
Sunday evening, someone broke into a Masset home through a bathroom window and took beer and coolers from the fridge. The residents were out at the time and had locked their doors, Sgt. Vardy said.
Both cases are under investigation.
Meanwhile, police arrested three people over the weekend for being drunk in public. Sgt. Vardy said they were incarcerated because police couldn’t find any other safe place to take them.
Police also arrested a woman Friday for uttering threats. She was released with conditions to stay away from the victim and keep a curfew.
