BEAVER BANK: A brazen break-and-enter in Beaver Bank while a woman and grandson slept has Halifax District RCMP investigating and on the hunt for the people responsible.

Overnight between July 9–10, thieves broke into a home as the homeowner and her grandson were asleep. RCMP recovered a stolen vehicle from the residence at about 7 a.m. on July 10 in Cole Harbour.

“When officers later went to the owner’s home in Beaver Bank to advise they had located the vehicle, they found the garage door of the home open,” said Cpl. Jennifer Clarke of Nova Scotia RCMP. “The homeowner wasn’t aware that her garage door had been open all night, or that her vehicle had been stolen.”

Cpl. Clarke said upon further investigation the homeowner discovered that thieves had been in her home and stole several items while she and her grandson were sleeping. No one was hurt.

She said investigators are looking for a Honda Civic that may have been in the area that evening.

Police are asking anyone who may have information about this incident to call Halifax District RCMP or Halifax Regional Police at 902-490-5020.
