Bouctouche Jewel Thieves Crash Truck Through Mall Entrance
The RCMP is investigating a break, enter and theft at a jewelry store after someone allegedly crashed a stolen pickup through a mall in Bouctouche, New Brunswick.
Shortly after 4 a.m. Sunday, Bouctouche RCMP responded to an alarm at Place Le Bourg on Irving Boulevard, according to Sgt. Patrick Tardif. Upon arrival police determined a vehicle had smashed through an entrance of the mall to gain entry to Bijouterie Trésor d’Or.
