Theft at Boston Bar school

Boston Bar RCMP looking for information regarding the break-in

Nine laptop computers and a projector have been stolen from Boston Bar Elementary Secondary School.

The RCMP were called to the school last week following an overnight break and enter that had occurred sometime between 9 p.m. on Feb. 19 and 6 a.m. on Feb. 20.

“This is a crime that directly impacts kids and their ability to learn,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “This can be very traumatic to kids, particular young kids who are left feeling like a victim because of what has happened¬†at their school. School is supposed to be the safest place away from home for children and this really upsets that balance for them.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Boston Bar detachment at 604-867-9333 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
