LAKE COUNTRY - A strange break and enter where nothing obvious was taken has police scratching their heads.

The resident of a home on the 9000 block of Chase Road in Lake Country called RCMP after returning from an outing to find their home broken into. The incident happened sometime between 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. April 23.

The thief apparently entered the house by breaking a lower rear bathroom window and crawling inside.

Once in the home, the culprit rummaged through dresser drawers and closets in the bedrooms and living room. It's not known what was taken, and many electronics were left behind.

A second break and enter happened the following day at the Cash Store on the 10000 block of Highway 97.

A newspaper carrier making early morning deliveries noticed a smashed door and called police. An investigation revealed the secondary door had also been smashed and suspects were able to enter the business, break into an ATM machine and leave with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Anyone with information about this crime or an other can contact the Central Okanagan Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at 1-800-222-TIPS, or post information online at www.crimestoppers.net. Information could lead to a reward of up to $2000.
