Lunenburg District RCMP are hoping the public might help them solve a break-and-enter case in the Forties, which resulted in the loss of a number of collectibles, as well as two ATVs, among other things.
On November 15, 2018, a break and enter was reported to Lunenburg District RCMP. The complainant told police he isn't often away from his home, but while he was out between 10:30 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. that day, someone broke into his home and garage and took several valuable items.
The suspects appear to have entered the home by prying open a bedroom window. They appear to have searched the entire home and took several collectibles including a signed baseball, card collections, comic book collections, and paintings. Also missing is a Nikon digital camera and a laptop. A sleep apnea machine was also stolen.
The suspects left a small dog that was inside the home out in the cold. The dog was not harmed.
The suspects also entered the victim's garage and took several tools and two ATVs - one 2009 black Can-am Outlander with Nova Scotia licence plate FB 281 and one 2014 green Yamaha Grizzly with Nova Scotia licence plate HD786. The victim is missing several plastic lobster boxes which are believed to have been used to transport the stolen items from the home.
The victim's German Shepherd was left in the garage by the suspects and was also not harmed.
Neighbours saw lights on in the victim's home around 3:15 p.m., then at 4:15 p.m. they saw the two ATVs being driven off the property by two riders wearing helmets and camouflage gear.
