Ready Cash Store hit again
Trinity Conception District RCMP are investigating a break and enter in the early morning hours of Thursday, March 10 at the Ready Cash Store, 46 Powell Drive Carbonear.
Cpl. Sean Tipple said, “ just after 4 a.m. members responded to an alarm and confirmed a break and enter had occurred.”
The RCMP spokesman said they believe a quantity of cash was taken, but he said they couldn’t confirm the amount.
“Our forensic identification section are still there collecting evidence now,” Cpl. Tipple told The Compass.
The RCMP spokesman explained investigators have to wait until the forensic people do their job because, “we don’t want to contaminate the scene.”
He said not much damage was caused to the building in the latest incident.
This marks the second incident at the same location in less than two months.
Around 4:30 p.m., Jan. 21 police received a call that the same cash store had been robbed.
In the first incident, police reported a male suspect entered the business and demanded money from an employee. The suspect fled the store with an undisclosed quantity of cash.
Cpl. Tipple said, “there is no indication the two incidents are related.”
Anyone with any information that could help police in their investigation of this latest incident is asked to contact the Trinity Conception RCMP or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
The RCMP forensic identification section were at the Ready Cash Store on Powell Drive in Carbonear Thursday, where a break and enter had taken place in the early morning hours of March 10.
