The Regina Police Service is asking for information from the public that may assist in investigation into a recent break and enter to a business that sells smartphones, cellphones and other electronic devices. Just yesterday, the Regina Police Service cleared a similar break and enter (which occurred on May 1st) in an investigation that involved two businesses in the Southland Mall with charges against three males and a female. It is not known if there is a connection between these cases, but there is still a large quantity of stolen merchandise from the May 1st break and enter that has not been recovered.
The most recent business break and enter occurred on May 7, 2013. Police were dispatched at 5:40 a.m. to a wireless service retailer in the 400 block of McDonald Street. The driver of a passing truck advised that there was a large front window broken at the business premises. Police entered and searched the premises, but found no suspects. An inventory by the store manager confirmed a large amount of product had been taken by an unknown suspect or suspects.
This case is still under investigation. The Regina Police Service is asking anyone with information that could assist in these investigations to contact the Regina Police Service at 777-6500 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
Police are also reminding members of the public to be wary of anyone offering cellphones or electronic devices for sale at a reduced price; it may be that you are being offered stolen merchandise. As always, business owners are reminded to keep their employees up to date on their own store security procedures and review the importance of observing anyone acting in a suspicious manner.
