Thieves target convenience stores

$12,000 worth of cigarettes were taken from Harv's market in Silver Creek

Two gas station convenience stores in Hope have been targeted in the last week.

Harv’s market in Silver Creek was broken into at 5:39 a.m. on Feb. 20. The thieves gained entry through the front door, triggering the alarm. According to police, they were inside the store for about 28 seconds and grabbed $12,000 worth of cigarettes.

Hope RCMP was then notified on Feb. 22 at 2:12 p.m. that Lakeway Market on Kawkawa Lake Road had been broken into. The owners were away at the time and the property was being taken care of by an employee. It’s unknown at this time if anything was taken.

Both break-ins are still under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
