Cameras hoped to curb bakery break-ins

Owners of a White Rock bakery and deli hope word that they are installing surveillance equipment will deter whoever broke into their business over the holidays from repeating the gesture.

Sheana Moyer said Hillcrest Bakery and Deli, at 1403 Johnston Rd., was targeted sometime between closing Dec. 31 and reopening Jan. 2.

The culprit or culprits responsible made off with about $5,000 worth of goods, including meat and cheese, a scale and a meat slicer, Moyer said. They also left fridge doors ajar. It’s believed two garbage cans that were also taken were used to transport the cache.

Moyer said the incident is curious in that access was gained without any damage being done. At the same time, she is confident the doors were locked when she left Dec. 31.

“I will swear on my life on that one,” she said.

Const. Janelle Shoihet confirmed police did investigate.

Moyer, who took over the business with her husband last May, said it is not the first time that things have gone missing.

The couple did not report the first incident, which occurred about three weeks ago, because they thought perhaps they’d inadvertently left a door unlocked.
