A safe containing thousands of dollars was stolen from a housing non-profit group on Thursday.

The break and entry happened at the Grey Mountain Housing Society’s office on Fourth Avenue between closing hours on May 13 and the next morning.

Around $2,444 is believed to be in the safe, said an RCMP news release.

Police are asking for tips from anyone who saw suspicious activity around the white, two-floor building on the corner of Hanson and Fourth Avenue, known as the Selwyn Block.

The Grey Mountain Housing Society is “a non-profit society that provides housing, based on income, to people of First Nations ancestry,” according to the Yukon Housing Corporation’s website.

The head of the society, Michael I. Winstanley, could not be reached for comment before press time.

Anyone with a police tip can call 1-800-222-8477. (James Munson)
