BEAVER BANK: The owners of Beaver Bank Station are upset that their staff are going to be impacted after thieve(s) made off with the safe they had at the location.

On their Facebook page, owners Chris Davis and Brad Farquhar posted that the restaurant was broken into sometime between midnight on July 29 and 9 a.m. on July 30. RCMP have been notified and are investigating the incident.

“These individuals took a grinder to our safe and when they realized the grinder wasn’t going to work they decided to take the entire safe,” said Davis. “This last year has been a lot of things, but nothing compared to what happened last Sunday night between the hours of midnight and 9 a.m.

“I wouldn’t be so upset because hey, this is what insurance is for, but money that belonged to staff was kept in that safe as well and this theft is now affecting the entire staff.”

Davis said they made the post to inform other businesses in the area that there are people out there who don’t care about all the hard work, dedication, and time that’s put into a business.

“Let’s show these people that Beaver Bankers stick together,” said Davis.

He encouraged anyone who saw anything weird or suspicious between those hours to contact police.
