The theft of a computer during a home break-in last Friday, coupled with the impact of the Canada Post strike, is causing financial woes for the owner of a trucking business in Sardis.
Tami Zall, the daughter of the businessman, is asking anyone with information about the break-in or the computer to please call the Chilliwack RCMP.
“He lost all of his company information, and he had no back-up files,” she said. “A new computer isn’t hard to get, but what’s on it isn’t.”
Zall said her father was away on a business trip, when the break-in occurred sometime Friday night.
The thieves ransacked every room of the Unsworth Road home, including the bathroom and her daughter’s bedroom.
“They were looking absolutely everywhere, even going through our clothes,” Zall said, before finally taking off with the computer, a television and a Sonyo camcorder, with video of her when she was pregnant with her daughter.
But she said the main thing is her father’s computer, a black, Compaq desktop model with the serial code MXXO36OFVL.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
