The Elks clubhouse on Second Avenue was the target of a brazen break-in on Monday morning.

President Roy Archer received a call from the alarm company about 7:30 a.m. and headed to the building. He found a window smashed in and an exit door booted open.

The office door had also been smashed in, and a large amount of material had been thrown around by the young thief, who was wearing gloves and a bandanna. The surveillance video clearly shows the thief, in particular his clothing and shoes, and Archer hopes a reward will help lead to his capture.

Anyone with information can contact Mission RCMP.

While the thief caused damage to the doors and window, he didn’t get too much – just some money from a charity box. However, as it is the second break-in within six months, Archer says the club is looking at putting bars on the windows to keep thieves out.
