RCMP believe the suspect gained entry to the business by smashing a window. After they were inside the business, they stole several computers. The investigation remains ongoing at this time.

RCMP said they are also investigating another slew of separate break-ins that have occurred to businesses along Leathead Road and Enterprise Way over the last two weeks.

RCMP said at least one car dealership has had a vehicle stolen during the break-ins.

“The suspect or suspects allegedly smash a window to gain entry into the building; once inside they are removing electronics and/or keys to vehicles in the lot,” said the RCMP.

“In multiple instances, vehicles have been taken once keys were obtained.”

RCMP said the break-ins occurred overnight and in the early morning hours. RCMP said multiple suspects have been identified and that a police investigation remains ongoing at this time.

With the latest incidents, RCMP said they encourage business owners to install a security system on their property.
