It wasn’t the easiest day on the job for an employee of M&M Meat Shop on Friday.

At approximately 6:30 a.m, on Dec. 5, an employee of M&M Meat Shop discovered a break and enter in progress.

The employee had been working in the back of the store and heard the sound of glass breaking.

A man, dressed in coveralls and a ski mask, broke through the door and was found piling up foodstuffs from the freezer.

The male then left through the door and was seen driving away in a Ford pickup truck with a “headache rack” mounted in the box.

While police were on scene, a second break and enter occurred at the West 30 Liquor Store. The suspect at that place smashed the front window and stole a quantity of liquor and cigarettes.

“Video surveillance indicates it was the same person in each robbery,” says Staff Sgt. Kevin Keane of the Salmon Arm RCMP detachment.

Police were able to track tire impressions in the snow heading westbound on Highway 1. A vehicle of similar description had been stolen from Kamloops earlier that same morning.

The RCMP continue to investigate.
