An RCMP in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing af­ter a break-in was re­ported early Sept. 29 at a busi­ness in Bridgetown.

An­napo­lis District RCMP re­ceived a com­plaint at 9:30 a.m. re­port­ing a break and en­ter at a busi­ness on Queen Street. Ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease, RCMP in­ves­ti­gated and de­ter­mined the al­leged break-in oc­curred overnight.

RCMP spokesper­son Cpl. Dal Hutchin­son said the busi­ness own­ers told po­lice the build­ing was se­cure when they closed it Sept. 28 and that it ap­peared to have been bro­ken into when they ar­rived to open the busi­ness the morn­ing of Sept. 29.

“They found that some­body had bro­ken in and caused a sig­nif­i­cant amount of dam­age,” he said.

Hutchin­son also re­vealed RCMP sus­pect mul­ti­ple per­sons were in­volved in the al­leged break-in, due to the ex­tent of dam­age caused. RCMP also say a fire ex­tin­guisher was used in­side the busi­ness.

“Given the amount of dam­age that was caused, it most likely in­volved more than one per­son. That is some­thing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion will re­veal. With a lot of cases like this, it’s typ­i­cally more than one per­son in­volved,” he said.

RCMP Foren­sic Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion Sec­tion is pro­vid­ing as­sis­tance as the in­ves­ti­ga­tion con­tin­ues.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the al­leged in­ci­dent is asked to con­tact Bridgetown RCMP at 902-665-4481.
