A South Surrey businesswoman is warning her Peninsula Village peers to keep an eye out for shady shoppers, after her purse and a “plaque print” were stolen Tuesday.

Alice Warkentin said she noticed the items were missing from her Gallery 24 shop at the end of the day, and believes they were taken sometime between 1 and 6:30 p.m.

Her purse – including credit and bank cards – was taken from its hiding place. The print – Angela Wrona’s Doin’ the Dishes – had been on display near the front door.

While she didn’t see who took the items, Warkentin said the culprits were quick to take advantage of the ill-gotten goods. In reporting her credit card stolen, she learned it had already been used.

Warkentin noted her business is not the only one in the mall that has been targeted recently. Earrings were taken from a newly opened dress shop in the last week, she said.

"I'm going to let… all the store owners know to keep an eye," she said.

Anyone with information on the thefts is asked to call Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
