PENTICTON - Penticton’s ice cream bandits have struck again.

Or maybe it's a case of lactose larceny.

For the second time this month, Newstead Distribution Warehouse was the target of a break and enter where fresh and frozen dairy products were taken from the warehouse, located at 1860 Government St. in Penticton.

Thieves scooped cheese, chocolate milk, ice cream and a Mastercraft air compressor from the business sometime overnight on Sunday, March 27, Penticton RCMP media spokesperson Cpl. Don Wrigglesworth says.

The warehouse was last burglarized on March 14, when thieves made off with several thousand dollars worth of high quality dairy foods.
