Nanaimo RCMP are hoping morning commuters can help solve a break-in on Wallace Street Tuesday.

Thieves broke into The Green Store at 110-256 Wallace St. between 7-8 a.m., making off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

“We know it was that time of the morning because there are other businesses in that building and the door was intact when they arrived,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. “The possibility of detection was extremely high with people going to work, people heading up to the Tim Hortons, so were putting a call out to anyone who might have seen or heard anything.”

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com.
