A building site on Pineview Road was subject to a break and enter overnight between Dec. 21 and Dec. 22. A lock was cut on a shipping container and several $1,000 in tools were taken. The incident marked the third break-in on three different job sites for the company.

Between 1 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Dec.26, a Westview Place residence was broken into when a back basement door was pried open. Cash, jewellery and a Garmin GPS was taken. Engravings on a stolen jewellery case read, “Merry Christmas Bobbie 1991” and on another, “Hazel on your retirement.”
