During the overnight hours of April 7 to the morning of April 8, two businesses in the industrial area of 100 Mile House were broken into.
Unknown culprits disabled the alarm at a plumbing supply store and stole approximately $15,000 worth of copper and tools.
The suspects are then believed to have broken into a nearby electrical supply store. Only a small amount of tools was stolen from this business.
It is believed that an audible alarm from the second business scared off the suspects. The investigation into these break-and-enters is continuing.
