Langford robbery may be linked to up Island crimes

Shell gas station was broken into by two masked individuals early Monday morning

Early Monday morning, March 25 at 4:23 a.m., the Shell gas station was broken into by two masked individuals.

The robbery is similar to others in Nanaimo and Ladysmith within the last week, said acting Sgt. Kathy Rochlitz, of the West Shore RCMP.

RCMP believe these break-and-enters are linked and are working with other detachments.

An ATM, cigarette cabinet and officer were broken into . The thieves left with cash, 25 cartons of cigarettes and scratch and win lotto tickets.

One of the thieves was wearing a denim jacket and jeans and there is no description for the second person.

RCMP police dog and forensic team arrived on scene. The dog was unable to track the individuals and RCMP are still waiting for the results of the forensic testing.
