VPD investigate break-in to Royal Canadian Mint store

Detectives from the Vancouver Police Department Property Crime Unit are investigating a weekend break-in to the Royal Canadian Mint store in the 700 block Granville Street in which it’s believed thousands of dollars worth of items have been stolen.

Shortly before 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, July 3rd, the Vancouver Police received a 9-1-1 call reporting that an alarm had been triggered at the Mint store. Upon arrival, officers were met by an employee who advised that the alarm had been tripped a couple of hours earlier. Officers were let into the store, which was secure from the outside, and quickly discovered that an interior wall had been smashed through and an unknown number of items that had been left in display cases were stolen.

Detectives are now working on obtaining any surveillance video. There is currently no suspect information available.
The Vancouver Police Department Property Crime Unit is asking anyone with any information on this break-in to call them at 604-717-3200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
