No luck breaking into Future Shop

Thieves didn't make much headway as they attempted to break into the now closed West Kelowna Future Shop location.

The store shut down last week as part of a Canada-wide restructuring by parent company Best Buy.

According to police, officers came across the break in in progress shortly after 5 a.m. Wednesday.

The would be thieves sped away in a van before they could be apprehended.

Police located the van a short time later, on its side, on Angus Drive at Harding Road.

The vehicle was empty when police arrived, the suspects having fled on foot.

A police dog was called in, however, no track was found.

Anyone with information on the attempted break in are asked to contact West Kelowna RCMP at 250-768-2880.
