Vandal(s) smashed the window at the Salvation Army Store on Manitoba Street this morning in Bracebridge and stole three items.
Store Manager Rob Sherlock says the items taken included a sailing ship’s brass telescope, a chrome clock with a sailboat motif and a foot and a half long birch bark canoe piece.
A cement block was used to break the glass.
Sherlock says it’s “very disheartening” and that it’s the first time it’s happened at the location in the 10-12 years he’s been there.
He says it must have happened between 9pm and 5am. Police were notified this morning.
If you have any info, call Bracebridge OPP.
