Minto Foodland targeted by thieves

Just weeks after bouncing back from a devastating fire, a grocery store in a small New Brunswick village has been targeted by thieves.

The manager of the Minto Foodland says thieves broke into the building sometime overnight Saturday and tried to steal the safe.

The culprits fled without the safe, but not before causing damage to the building.

Richard Veenhuis tells CTV Atlantic the incident is disheartening for everyone in the small village.

Fire destroyed the former Foodland in early June, and the temporary location has only been open for about three weeks.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
