*********Correction************ Merritt RCMP now believe the break-in was done by only the two suspects pictured above.
Thieves targeting downtown Merritt business.
Merritt RCMP Cpl Brock Hedrick says the alarm was triggered at the Lemonade Stand on Quilchena Ave just before 5am.
"Our officers responded and determined a break-in had occurred. Between 4:05am and 4:25am two males are observed on video surveillance. They essentially punched the lock out of the door, and then departed. Another male and female returned several minutes later and entered the store with bags, and a bankers type box."
Hedrick says an undetermined number of e-cigarettes, and other tobacco related products were stolen.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Merritt RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
