Last week’s break in at the Cedar Crest Society could have some longer lasting repercussions for the non-profit organization.
Not only does the group have to make up for what was stolen, but they also have a large bill to cover the damages says RCMP Corporal Clint Lange:
“The cost of repairs for the windows in there, from what I understand from the owner, is in the ballpark of 2,000 dollars – which is something that the Cedar Crest Society would unfortunately be responsible for.”
The idea that someone broke into a non-profit society is somewhat shocking admits Lange:
“Cedar Crest Society is a non-profit society… and its there to help people, and its kind of shocking to have someone actually break into a place that’s really in operation to help out people who are having a hard time – it just really adds to the sting.”
The RCMP are asking for the public’s assistance in locating those involved and encourage anyone with information come forward anonymously via the Crimestoppers tip line (1-800-222-8477).
