Thieves break into show home

NANAIMO – Culprits make off with furniture from show home on Northfield Road.

Police are probing the break and enter of a show home on Northfield Road on the weekend, when thieves made off with furniture and other items sometime between Friday and Sunday.

Investigators were contacted by the property caretaker, who said he found the front door pried open and a window smashed Monday morning. Pry marks were also found on the back door of the house, located at 2012 Northfield Rd.

Furniture was gone too, including a glass top coffee table with matching end table and lamp, a yellow and grey rug, a white leather chair, two large metal accent sculptures and a queen size dark wooden bed frame.

Police believe it’s possible more than one person and a truck were needed to make off with so much furniture. Inquiries around the neighbourhood also turned up a witness who reported seeing a man on a mountain bike near the home at about 10:30 p.m. Sunday carrying two large glass slabs that possibly came from the missing coffee table.

“We are confident, given the location of the home and considering the time and effort required to remove the items, someone saw or heard something which may assist in the investigation,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at
