Thieves broke into Sherri’s Gas Bar and Grill in Old Massett Village on Haida Gwaii yesterday.
The thieves got away with not only cash and cigarettes, but they also stole items that were donated for a fundraiser.
Sherri Dick is the owner of the gas bar and restaurant, and she says the fundraiser is for a woman who’s currently in need of a liver transplant.
Dick says they had just set up the fundraising display the night before.
The thieves tore off the protective metal bars over the front window.
The break in has been reported to the RCMP.
Dick estimates the value of all the items stolen to be around $1,300.
