Just a few days after the Barriere Legion co-hosted a free community barbecue in honour of Legion Week, a member arrived at the Legion building the morning of Tuesday, June 25, to find evidence of a break- in.
Thieves had disabled the security alarm, which although disconnected from the security company, did set off an internal building alarm. Unfortunately, no one in the area responded by calling police.
Legion president Al Fortin, said the thieves went directly to where the liquor, pull tabs, and cash was stored.
“We lost about $1,200 in booze, $150 in cash, and $900 in pull tabs,” said Fortin, “I know sometimes members set off the alarm by accident when coming and going, but we’re asking that if neighbours hear the alarm, please notify police.”
