BREAK AND ENTER LANTZVILLE BRITISH COLUMBIA
Oct 21, 2017
Bulletin 2017-2285

A beloved jewellery store in Lantzville is covered in roughly an inch of smashed glass after thieves broke in early Saturday morning, 

Kellers Jewellery owner Joe Keller said his door and display alarms went off at roughly 5 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 21 and RCMP were contacted shortly after. When the owner arrived at his store, he found the front door ripped open with a crowbar and his french doors smashed with the crowbar and rocks. "We had three, possibly four glass jewellery counters smashed to pieces. There's close to an inch of glass on the floor."  He said it was heart-wrenching to step in to his store and see the damage.  Customer's jewellery and their more expensive items were safe in their vault. 

Kellers Jewellers has operated in the Nanaimo area since 1960, the past 25 years in Lantzville. The store remained open Saturday as Keller cleaned it up and had the doors replaced, and said things will be back to business as usual. “It’d just be nice to get these clowns,” he said.

Nanaimo RCMP are investigating. The officer in charge is Staff Sgt John Blaase  250-754-2345
