Kilby Restaurant ransacked

Thieves take off with food from fridge and freezer

A thief has taken off with food that was stockpiled for the busy tourist season ahead.

Staff at Kilby Historic Site’s restaurant discovered that their fridge and freezer had been ransacked overnight, and most of the contents stolen.

Both the fridge and freezer are located inside an outbuilding at the site, and that shed’s door was broken to gain entry.

Staff said they were stocking up for several weeks to be able to handle the upcoming busy season, which would begin in earnest this weekend with Mother’s Day. They said they will be able to put together something nice for the moms who come for lunch. Some of the items stolen include 20 lb roasts, fish and cheese.

The only thing the thieves left behind was the bread and the cheddar cheese.

The break in would have happened sometime between Monday evening and Tuesday morning this week, and Agassiz RCMP are asking that anyone with information call 604-796-2211, or Crimestoppers.

As of press time, they hadn’t received any other reports of crime in the Harrison Mills area.
