Agassiz Thrift Store Break-In

RCMP believe it was a targeted attack. Thieves take food out of family's mouths with lost money

Agassiz-Harrison Community Services (AHCS) Thrift Store, located at 6919 Cheam Avenue, survives on donations from the community and is very grateful for those donations. It is with deep sadness and anger that we have to report we have had a break-in at the Thrift Store this past Friday night. The thieves specifically went looking for cash and did not take merchandise. The stolen cash can represent feeding a family for a week!

The RCMP believes this to be a planned and a specifically targeted break-in because the windows and iron bars were tampered from the inside so that they could be pushed in when they broke into the store. The thieves specifically looked for the cash drawer key and when they couldn’t find it they broke the drawer. We now have a security concern; we have to fix and repair damage done by the break in, spending money that should be used for feeding families.

It is our responsibility as a community, to ensure when we see something suspicious or not quite right we speak up and ask questions so we can prevent things like this happening in the future.

No cash will be kept on the premises.
