A vehicle was driven through the front doors of two businesses on Mackenzie Avenue Wednesday morning, before a number of items were stolen.

The Williams Lake RCMP say the first incident took place at about 3 a.m. Suspects broke into a business at 750 MacKenzie Ave. by driving a vehicle through the gate and then through the front doors. The suspects then stole a cash register.

Approximately an hour later, suspects broke into a second business further west on MacKenzie Avenue, again using a vehicle to smash through the front doors.

It is unknown at this time the extent of the theft and if the two incidents are related.

Police say the possible suspect vehicle may be a mid-sized blue car that will have fresh damage to the front end, hood, and windshield. The RCMP is still investigating and encouraging anyone with information or knowledge on these matters to come forward. The Williams Lake RCMP can be reached at 250-392-6211 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
