Someone – police don’t know who yet – broke into the A&W restaurant at Algonquin Blvd. and Hwy. 655 overnight Sunday.

Timmins Police communications co-ordinator Marc Depatie confirms that whoever did it got in by smashing the wall near the drive-thru window. “Yes. It was on that portion of the building that was compromised for the thieves to gain entry.”

Forensic identification officers have done their work, looking for evidence.

“At this point,” Depatie notes,” we’re trying to determine with the owners the exact amount of cash that was taken and other items that may have been taken in the process of the theft.”

Anyone who knows anything about who broke into the restaurant is asked to call city police at 264-1201 or Crime Stoppers at 888-222-8477.
