During the evening of Monday, Sept. 16 an unknown person or persons broke into a storage unit located in the tunnel area.

The unit is extra storage for the Princeton Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Store.

The lock to the unit was broken off to gain entry and the individual(s) tore through boxes and bags throwing items into the mud outside of the unit.

“This money is for the community,” said Ann Middleton, 2nd vice president of the Hospital Auxiliary, “Why would someone do this?” she asks.

Members of the auxiliary were called and cleaned up the mess left behind.

The Princeton Hospital Auxiliary is well known in the community for their dedicated support to the Princeton General Hospital, Ridgewood Lodge, Princeton Highway Extrication, Penticton Hospital, as well as numerous community groups and events.

If you have any information pertaining to this break in please call the Princeton RCMP at 250-295-6911.
