Alarm system thwarts vet clinic theft: RCMP

The RCMP say an alarm system thwarted a break and enter at a veterinary clinic on Commercial St. in New Minas.

Surveillance footage shows a man wearing gloves and a dark coloured hoodie using a tool to pry the door open early Wednesday morning.

The suspect entered the building, then ran from the scene and left the area in a vehicle, headed down Commercial Street.

Police suspect the very loud audible alarm in the building caused him to reconsider his intentions.

Nothing was stolen from the clinic, and the matter remains under investigation.

A surveillance photo of the suspect is available on our website.
