Police seek leads following string of break ins

There was a rash of break and enters last week, according to Whitehorse RCMP.

There was a rash of break and enters last week, according to Whitehorse RCMP.

Police said Tuesday they received seven reports of possible break and enters at businesses in Whitehorse.

Thieves managed to enter four of the seven businesses.

All the incidents happened during the early morning hours between Aug. 1 and 9.

One of those businesses was Meadia Solutions on Second Avenue and Hanson Street.

On Aug. 8, two men broke into a side boardroom of the computer store.

But thanks to the internal doors being locked and the RCMP’s quick response, the men had to abort their plans.

They left two computers they had taken from the boardroom inside their getaway vehicle, with the keys still in the ignition.

Surveillance camera footage captured an image of at least one of the men. He was wearing a hoodie and a cap to obstruct the camera’s view. He was also wearing white gloves and seemed well-prepared, owner Trevor Mead-Robins told the News at the time.

Police have yet to arrest anyone in connection with the break-ins.

Anybody with information is asked to contact Whitehorse RCMP at 667-5555.
