General News · 17th June 2019
Sometime between 5:00 pm Saturday night June 15th and 11:30 am Sunday June 16th someone came into the craft shop and took money and other items from the cash register. They also took the keys to the cash register, the first aid kit, three of Irene's silver pendants: one honeycomb, a tiny cross made of twigs and a seashell pendant. A lot of other items are missing now that we are checking inventory. The RCMP was called and a report was filed.
We are asking the community for your help. If you have any information or saw anything on Saturday night / Sunday morning please speak up. If the person who took these items would like to return them you may place them in an envelope with Cortes Craft shop written on the outside and drop them in either the Squirrel Cove or Manson Landing outgoing Canada Post mailbox. The cash register keys and pendants are particularly important . There will be no questions asked.
The RCMP has given a two week timeline for the items to be returned otherwise a subsequent investigation will be opened up.
The artists all work very hard to produce their crafts on the island and rely on the income from their work . It is up to all of us to insure the integrity and safety of the shop.
