|The Scene of the crime, a break in at the Canada Post building last week
remains under investigation
What may soon be known as the Great Prince Rupert Post Office caper remains under investigation, with members of the Prince Rupert detachment of the RCMP working a break in file from last week and seeking the assistance of the public if they have any information to shed on the seven day old incident.
The Break at the downtown Canada Post building was reported to the Mounties at 7AM on Monday morning of July 8th, with responding officers determining that the break in to the Second Avenue Post Office building took place sometime in the overnight period of July 7th.

As the Mounties tell the tale, some articles were reportedly stolen from the facility, though no details as to what may have been in them has been released by officials.
The RCMP continue to investigate the incident by reviewing surveillance footage and taking statements from employees. There was no indication as to whether an alarm system may have been operating during the time period in question.
As a result of last weeks investigation, the Post Office did not resume its normal operations until the mid day period of July 8, with service interruptions affecting service on the day.
Though considering the reduced level of mail coming door to door these days, the one day break from service probably went un-noticed by most residents.
Should you have any information for the Detachment you can contact the Prince Rupert RCMP at 250-627-0700 or through Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
