Thieves target businesses

Police in White Rock and South Surrey are on the hunt for culprits who've broken into businesses in both cities in recent days.

Employees of at least one Grandview Corners business spent Monday morning sweeping glass from their store's entranceway, after thieves smashed out a front door.

The break-in at the Shoe Warehouse occurred early June 20. Those behind it made off with the store's till, which fortunately was empty.

An employee at the store said Shoe Warehouse was not the only business hit. She heard of at least one in Morgan Crossing that was also targeted.

Police were not available to comment. Anyone with information on the person or people responsible may contact Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.

In White Rock, officers are investigating an early morning break-in to an eye care business.

Staff Sgt. Lesli Roseberry said Horizon Vision Centre, at 15227 Thrift Ave., was targeted around 5:45 a.m. June 16, when culprits smashed a window and made off with an undetermined amount of product.

There were no suspects or witnesses.

Investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to contact the detachment at 778-593-3600.
