SCUGOG: Durham Regional Police are currently looking for suspects, after Allen Computers and Electronics on Water St., in Port Perry was robbed in the early morning hours of Tuesday, April 28.
The thieves broke the window of one of the storefront doors with a large rock, and took about 10 cellphones and tablets valued at around $1,000 from the store at around 4:30 a.m. No money was taken from the register.
“They knew what they were looking for and they took it. They were in and out in minutes,” store owner Brad Allen told The Standard.
Durham Regional Police arrived shortly after the store’s alarm was activated, but were unable to locate a suspect, and according to Mr. Allen, did not seem hopeful that many of the stolen items would turn up.
“They said that unless one turns up, they are going to have to wait for another break in and see if they can trace the serial numbers,” said Mr. Allen.
There is currently an investigation underway into the robbery. If the public has any information, they can contact Crime Stoppers at 905-436-8477 or Durham Regional Police at 1-888-579-1520.
