Sometime in the overnight hours of Saturday May 5th, an unknown person or persons broke into a museum in the 2700 block of Harbour Rd, twice.

At approx. 11:10 pm, an unknown person or persons broke into the Alberni Maritime Heritage Society through the front doors, setting off the alarm. Once inside the building, the suspect or suspects stole a donations box. The donation box was later located discarded a short distance away from the museum. The suspect or suspects had broken into it and stolen the cash donations.

Later that same night, sometime after 1 am, the locked compound of the Alberni Maritime Heritage Society was entered. The unknown suspect or suspects cut the lock securing the gates then stole an air compressor that had been donated to the society. The compressor was a large older unit and would likely have needed to be carried by more than one person.
