Local RCMP are saying that two Comox Valley break-and-enters could be related. A business in Black Creek was broken into, as well as a business in Cumberland.

Constable Rob Gardner says the ongoing investigation has led to hints that the incidents could have both been targeted – due to the items stolen and those that suspects attempted to steal.

Gardner says a large amount of drill bits and tools were taken from the Black Creek business.
