Break and enter at NWCC

Teacher at NWCC found office window pried open and desk drawer rummaged through Feb. 4.

RCMP responded to a call about a break and enter at the Northwest Community College on Feb. 4, said RCMP Corporal Geary.

Cpl. Geary says a teacher found their office windows pried open and their top desk drawer rummaged through.

The suspect was looking for cash that the teacher usually stores there, but no cash was there at the time of the break and enter, said Cpl. Geary.

RCMP have no current suspects and anyone with information is asked to call Houston RCMP at 250-845-2204 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Someone shoplifted some liquor from the Houston Liquor Store on Feb. 7, but RCMP caught the suspect, retrieved the liquor and returned it, said Cpl. Geary.

RCMP are still contemplating charges, he added.
