Two more break-ins occurred early Thursday in Salmo and Taghum.

Both the Taghum Shell and Dragonfly Café in Salmo were broken into.

“The thief(s) smashed the front glass door at both locations to grain entry,” said RCMP Cst. Colleen Lowing in a release.

At the Shell, alcohol and cigarettes were stolen and the thief tried to get into the cash register, though it didn’t contain any cash at the time.

At the Dragonfly Café, the thief gained entry and took the whole cash register, getting away with $300, said police.

The thief may be associated to a dark coloured, mid-2000 model Honda or Toyota Sedan.

The night prior, four break and enters occurred — at the Kootenay Savings Credit Union at the Playmour Junction, Amanda’s Restaurant on Nelson’s north shore, and in Castlegar at the Thirsty Duck Pub and Canadian Tire.

Central Kootenay RCMP request anyone with information on who is responsible for these break and enters to please contact the Nelson or Salmo RCMP, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
