FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — A tablet and around $1,400 in cash were stolen from Papa John’s in Fort St. John this week.
Manager Upma Kad says the pizza place was broken into sometime between when the store closed at 11 p.m. Monday evening and when it opened at 11 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Kad assumes the suspect went in through the back door, as the front door was still intact and locked.
“The first thing they did was turn off the camera, so they unplugged the main switch for the cameras,” said Kad.
The suspect took a tablet, cash from the tills and money from the back. They also attempted to break into the main safe but were unsuccessful.
In total, the thief made away with approximately $1,400 in cash, a $300 to $400 tablet and broke the tills, making them inoperable.
Anyone with information on the break-in is asked to contact the local RCMP detachment at 250-787-8100.
To remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers can be contacted at 1-800-222-8477 or submit a tip online at www.northernbccrimestoppers.ca.
