BURLINGTON, ON  October 20, 2011  Halton Regional Police Service is still investigating the theft of cigarettes from a convenience store in Burlington.

Sometime between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on July 24th, unknown suspect(s) entered the rear storage area of the Big Bear Convenience Store located at 450 Appleby Line and removed several cartons of cigarettes.  The suspect(s) then exited through the back door leading into a laneway.

The store was open for business at the time of the theft.  What – is someone kidding?  No insurance claim on this one – and you have to know that someone who knows the a store and how it operates was the one who provided the information to the culprits that made off with the smokes.

Anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222-8477 (TIPS) or through the web at or by texting “Tip201” with your message to 274637 (crimes)
