PENTICTON  - Penticton RCMP are seeking public assistance for leads regarding several break ins that occurred in the city last night.

Penticton RCMP media liaison Rick Dellebuur says a security company notified police of a break in at Integrity Auto on Government Street. They found the front door glass was missing at 1:49 a.m.

Owners attended and indicated nothing appeared to be missing inside.

At 3:28 a.m., police were notified by the owner of Gina’s Hair Design on White Street that her business had been broken into and a cash box containing a small amount of cash taken.

The front glass door of the business was broken to gain access.

At 7:15 a.m., police were notified of insecure premises at Aveda Hair Salon on Front Street. Police found the front door pried open and a small quantity of cash and a Mac Book Air computer was taken.

While making neighbourhood inquiries to the break in, officers discovered Carl’s Flowers on Front Street was broken into by prying the front door. Inside, the till was pried open and the cash drawer discarded. Owners later confirmed nothing else missing.

Anyone who might have any information regarding these break ins are asked to contact the Penticton RCMP at 250-492-4300, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
