The glass on two doors was broken after suspects attempted to gain entry to the Comer Station Beer and Wine Store in Williams Lake.
RCMP responded to a report of a break and enter in progress early Friday morning (March 15) and said the suspects fled prior to police arriving.
A spokesperson for the Store said they were alerted of the incident at around 3 am when staff at the neighboring Comer Station Convenience Store who were doing inventory heard the alarms go off.
She said four male suspects used a rock and a baseball bat to attempt to gain entry.
“I’m just glad they didn’t get past the lobby, and it’s pretty sad that stuff like this is happening and it’s not a shock when it happens,” she said.
“It’s just a thing of eye rolling like really seriously you guys have nothing better to do at three thirty in the morning then to break windows at a beer store?”
RCMP ask anyone with information to call the Williams Lake detachment at (250) 392-6211 or Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477. Crime Stoppers also subscribes to web tips at www.bccrimestoppers.com.
