On the morning of Friday, February 23rd, three businesses in a complex in Turtle Bay Crossing on Oceola Road in Lake Country discovered that they had been broken into overnight.   Video surveillance shows two suspects arriving to the area in a dark coloured SUV or a truck with a canopy. A yoga studio found a cash box, notebook and accordion style organizers had been taken.  The neighboring Starbucks was missing a black Dell Chromebook laptop (s/n 5DSSWB2) and a sushi restaurant was missing cash from the til.  The cash box from the yoga studio, along with the notebook and file folders, were turned in soon after when they were found on a roadway on Commonage Road in the Vernon area.  Video surveillance caught this bearded suspect wearing light clothing in one of the businesses.
