Barriere liquor store break-in foiled by witness

Barriere liquor store break-in foiled by witness March 3, 2012

During the early morning hours on March 3, 2012, a witness observed two males wearing dark clothing with a drill attempting to break into the Barriere BC Liquor Store by drilling the front door lock to gain entry.

The witness observing the crime disrupted the break-in and the culprits fled on foot behind the building.  Barriere RCMP and Kamloops Police Dog Services attended and tracked the males to a nearby road, where fresh tire marks were located.  It is believe the males entered the vehicle and fled the area away from the scene.

Cst. Napier says, “Barriere RCMP want the community to be aware of their surroundings, especially suspicious people or activity, and vehicles that do not belong.  You can call 911 to report a suspicious occurrence, but please have as much detail as possible and call right away.  You can help increase the odds of catching these criminals with timely and detailed information.”
