Every cigarette and lottery ticket stolen from Parksville’s Log Cabin General Store

Break-in, theft occurred late on June 10 or early June 11

Parksville’s Log Cabin General Store was broken into this week and the store’s owner said a large quantity of cigarettes and lottery tickets were stolen.

Peter Haseltine said sometime overnight on June 10 or in the early morning of June 11, someone broke in through a front window of the shop, at 1000 Resort Dr.

“Somebody carved out the wood frame of the window to get to the lock, unlocked it, took the time to take down the security bars and stole those,” Haseltine said. “The air conditioner that was mounted in the window, they disconnected that and stole that too, and threw it in the bushes… we did find it later.”

Haseltine said once the person was inside, they stole “every cigarette, cigar, rolling paper, lighters and four full trays of lottery tickets.”

They also stole the store’s float and coin rolls.

This has been the second time the store has been robbed in the four-and-a-half years Haseltine has owned it. He said it’s discouraging seeing crime happening in the Parksville Qualicum Beach region.
