Thieves made off with an unknown amount of jewelry and now police are looking for suspects and witnesses following an early-morning break-in at Cottonwood Centre on Thursday.

Once on scene, police found smashed glass on a door to the mall.

While clearing the premises, they also noticed that the suspect(s) had forced their way inside a jewelry store inside the mall and “an unknown quantity of jewelry was stolen,” Cpl. Carmen Kiener, media spokesperson with the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment stated in a Nov. 24 press release.

According to Cottonwood Centre’s online directory, there are three jewelry stores in the mall.
