ASHERN - A series of break and enters in the town of Ashern have left RCMP baffled and they are asking for help from the public in catching these burglars.
Between January 2, 2019 and April 2, 2019, there have been 23 break and enters to a variety of businesses in the area including a medical clinic, law office, arena, and school.
The break-ins are occurring during the early morning hours and in almost all cases, the suspects are gaining entry by breaking a window. The suspects are taking mostly cash or small items from the businesses.
"We want to remind everyone in the area to be alert and vigilant," said Sgt. Richard Marshall of Lundar RCMP. "If you see something, say something. Report any suspicious activity to police. For store owners, secure your doors and windows, keep outdoor lights on, and consider installing an alarm or video surveillance."
