Lucky’s Pet Supply in Penticton.

Another Penticton business broken into

Pet store has cash and portable technology stolen over the weekend

Lucky’s Pet Supply is on the growing list of businesses in Penticton that were broken into over the past week.

Store owner Chrystina Barnard said her neighbour called her on Sunday to let her know the warehouse door was hoisted up about a foot off the ground. She said it appears as though the thief used a crowbar to pry it open and made their way into the store.

“I feel pretty violated,” she said. “I have security video in the store and watched the person as they moved around for about 30 minutes inside, it was pretty hard to watch.”

Some of the items that were stolen include a black Lenovo laptop, black and silver Compaq laptop, black Royal Sovereign tablet and a new model of a Moneris touchscreen debit machine. Making the situation even worse, the thief made off with two black Nest security cameras.

“They were two brand new cameras that we were planning to install for extra security but hadn’t had a chance to do that. The one camera I did have picked him up but all you can really see is that he was wearing a black hoodie. I definitely will be putting more security measures in place now,” said Barnard, who is going into her third year of business with the store.

Lackey’s Pet Supply was closed on Monday as Barnard was shaken by the incident and was planning to re-open today.

Cowork Penticton, located at 129 Nanimo Ave. W., said they were broken into on March 30. The glass block window on the laneway side was broken and a number of items including portable technology, cash, camera gear, a case of wine and two bicycles were stolen. In response they have upped their security camera system. One of the bikes was later recovered thanks to the bike registration initiative, Project 529.

Two days prior to that incident a downtown Main Street clothing store was also broken into. Thieves smashed the front window of ad hoc and stole cash and costume jewellery.
