First Nations carvings stolen from Port Alberni home

Second break and enter occurred at former Fairway Market site

Port Alberni RCMP were called to the scene of a residential break and enter on Saturday, July 7. Sometime in the preceding three to four days, a home in the 2600 block of 4th Avenue was forcibly broken into and several First Nations carvings were stolen from the home.

This was not the only break and enter that occurred over the weekend. On Friday, police responded to a break and enter at the former Fairway Market site.

The property representative had entered the building to find water spraying all over the room. When the thieves had forced their way into the locked building, they cut and removed several copper pipes—leaving the water to spray everywhere.

Anyone who may have information on the break and enters is asked to contact the Port Alberni RCMP at 250-723-2424 or call Alberni Valley Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
