Simply robbed

The West Kelowna RCMP are looking for multiple suspects after at least four men in a truck were seen breaking into Simply Computing last weekend.

On December 15, 2012 just before midnight, the West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a commercial break and enter at Simply Computing located at 2180 Elk Road. A witness reported seeing four men loading up a pickup quickly in front of the store.

When police arrived moments later, the vehicle and suspects were gone, along with an estimated $100,000 in electronic merchandise.

The mechanism on the overhead-style security door had been damaged and the underlying glass doors smashed to gain entry.

The theft appeared to target mostly Apple iPads and Macbooks.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880. Remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
