Police are investigating two recent break-ins in Whitehorse.

On July 4, shortly after 8 a.m., Whitehorse RCMP received a report of a break-and-enter and theft from the fish ladder off Nisutlin Road. An undisclosed amount of cash was taken.

Yukon Energy spokesperson Janet Patterson said a window was broken. It has been boarded up and the fish ladder remains open.

Two days later, on July 6, police were called when the alarm went off at the Yukon Liquor Corporation warehouse on Quartz Road at approximately 3 a.m. According to the RCMP, police responded immediately and found three youths nearby in possession of liquor.

Two of the youths were held for court while the third youth was released on a promise to appear.

Charges range from break-and-enter to a business, possession of stolen property, and failing to comply with a probation order.

Both of these break-ins are still being investigated.

Whitehorse RCMP is asking anyone with information to call police at 867-667-5555.
