The Powell River RCMP is investigating a pair of recent break-and-enter cases.

Just after 1:15pm last Friday, police responded to a report of a B & E at a business in the 7100 block of Duncan Street. 

Some time between 5:30pm last Thursday and 8:00am last Friday, someone broke into the business and stole a 6” Makita grinder, a Honda battery charger and a Carstech battery charger. 

The value of the items stolen was over $300.

Then, just before 3:30pm last Friday, police responded to another B & E report in the 7000 block of Quesnel Street. 

Sometime during the previous night, someone entered a home and stole a chrome

ship bell, a grinder, and five fishing flashers. Those stolen items are collectively worth around $375.
