It seems someone couldn’t wait until Halloween to get their treat.
Burnaby RCMP was called to Charlie’s Chocolate Factory on Canada Way on the morning of Oct. 20 after an alarm was triggered at the store. Officers from the department’s property unit and a canine team responded to the call shortly before 1 a.m.
“A passerby informed us (Burnaby RCMP) that the front door had been smashed and he thought he heard noises inside,” said Staff Sgt. Maj. John Buis.
When police arrived the store was empty and nothing appeared out of place, according to the officers’ preliminary report.
“It’s unknown at this time what was taken. Nothing (was) noted disturbed inside the business,” Buis said. “We’ve got some investigational leads that we’re going to pursue.”
Police were, however, able to recover a surveillance video that shows the suspect inside the store. The suspect is described as a Caucasian man, 6-1, slim build and 30 to 40 years old with blond or brown hair. He was wearing a baseball hat, black jacket, jeans and black shoes at the time of the break-in.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.
