KAMLOOPS - The owners of a North Shore bakery are asking for the public’s help in locating an employee’s belongings after they were stolen from a company vehicle early yesterday morning.

This isn’t the first time thieves have struck at Craig’s Bakery and Deli on Tranquille Road.

Co-owner Cyndy Einfeld says last month a different driver had envelopes of cash, his jacket and wallet stolen while he was loading product into a company vehicle parked right outside the bakery.

Einfeld says when the employee went into the store briefly to grab more product and returned to the van he noticed the items were stolen. She says somebody returned the wallet and the jacket, but the cash was not returned.

A similar incident happened yesterday, June 11.

“The same thing, the (driver) was loading up and he came back into the store for a split second and a different jacket, keys, and some blank envelopes were stolen, I think the (thief) was probably hoping to find cash in the envelopes again," Einfeld says.

Meanwhile, they noticed a third company van, parked behind the bakery, had been broken into and a cage divider used to prevent trays from sliding towards the driver compartment of the delivery van was damaged by thieves.

“They actually bent it so they could get into the cab,” she says.

Einfeld says in the eight years her and husband Craig have been in business in the Brock Shopping Centre, this is the first time they have had to deal with theft.

“It’s all happening around the same time, between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m.,” she says, adding they plan to be more alert in the upcoming days.

Einfeld says they have put up a poster to help their employee find keys to a GMC truck. Anyone with information is asked to call the bakery at 250-376-1117.

The driver was pulled right up to the building when the thefts occurred.
