Thieves escape with electronics in Future Shop robbery

Less than a week after thieves stole $15,000 in electronics from Target, Future Shop has been victimized.

Another major Chilliwack retailer has been hit by brazen thieves.

RCMP were called out late Saturday night, responding to an alarm at the Future Shop on Luckakuck Way. Thieves had broken in and made off with approximately $50,000 worth of electronic equipment, disappearing before police arrived.

The heist is similar to one last week at the Target.

Thieves broke into the Cottonwood Mall department store last Monday night, escaping with approximately $15,000 in electronics.

The latest theft is being investigated by the RCMP with the assistance of the Lower Mainland Integrated Forensic Identification Section (IFIS).

We encourage everyone to report any suspicious activity,” said RCMP Cst. Ashley St. Germaine. “If anyone was in the area of Future Shop before midnight and saw anything, we want to hear from you. Sometimes the smallest piece of information can provide police with a lot of help.”

The RCMP can be reached by phone at 604-792-4611. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
