Police looking for tips in spate of Rutland break ins

Police are looking for information in relation to a series of commercial break ins early Wednesday morning.

Kelowna Mounties received reports of break and enters at three commercial properties in the Rutland area, shortly after  3 a.m., Oct. 17.

"The three break ins appear to have been completed in quick succession and in the same manner, and are very likely related," said Const. Kris Clark.

The businesses of Extreme Pita (304-1500 Banks Road), Magicuts (210-2469 Highway 97 North) and Crystal Nails (135-2463 Highway 97 North) all had their front doors smashed.

"The suspect(s) were seemingly only interesting in cashing out the stores as nothing else of value was reported missing," he said.

The suspect(s) fled the area with a small amount of money. No description of the suspect(s) or vehicle is available at this time.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, online at www.crimestoppers.net or by text at CRIMES (274637) ktown.
