PENTICTON - Penticton RCMP are investigating several commercial break and enters that took place in the city last week.

Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says police responded to a break-in at Sport Chek overnight on Oct. 20. Police arrived at the retail outlet at 4:45 a.m. to find a front window smashed. Video revealed thieves went for Under Armour hoodies located near the entry point.

RCMP were called to the Fairview Liquor Store on Fairview Road on Oct. 21 after a complaint of an attempted break and enter. The front door and window had been shattered sometime overnight. Thieves attempted to gain entry by removing the entrance door using a tow rope tied to a vehicle but were unsuccessful in gaining entry.

A torn piece of rope was still dangling from the window bars. An older Jeep Cherokee containing two occupants are believed to be involved in the incident.

An alarm sounded at NAPA Auto Parts on Oct. 23 at 1:21 a.m. Police arrived to find a pane of glass had been removed from the garage door but upon inspection by a property representative, nothing was noticed missing. A video of the incident shows a man crawling along the floor while in the building for a short period, then disappearing.
