Ready Cash Store hit again

The Compass - - EDITORIAL OPINION -

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.
