On March 16 at 8:30 a.m., Port Hardy RCMP responded to a commercial break and enter at the Quatsino First Nation Band Office.

The break and enter occurred sometime between late Friday night and early Monday morning.

The side door was forced open causing a considerable amount of damage to the property. Stolen were cigarettes, an Apple MacBook Pro laptop and other items valuing over $3,000.

The RCMP conducted an investigation which resulted in the recovery of the stolen items and the arrest of three people.

Businesses and home owners are reminded to call police immediately in situations such as this, as it increases the likelihood of recovering stolen property and apprehending those responsible, says Staff Sergeant Gord Brownridge.

Two youths have also been charged with break and enter and possession of stolen property.
