There was another break-and-enter in downtown Mission early Wednesday morning.

Mission RCMP are investigating the incident, which occurred at the Big Box Outlet store on First Avenue.

Police received the call at approximately 7 a.m. from a person who noticed a broken window at the Remax office next door.

When police arrived, they discovered a hole had been cut through the wall and into the outlet store.

This is similar to several other business break-ins which have occurred over the last several months in the downtown core.

“Our prolific offender suppression team has identified a suspect responsible for some of those offences,” said RCMP Sgt. Shaun Wright.

The investigation is ongoing and until charges are laid, police cannot provide more information on the suspect.
