Thieves target North Atlantic Gas station in Steady Brook twice in one night

The RCMP are investigating two separate break and enters that occurred on Friday morning at the North Atlantic Gas station in Steady Brook.

The first happened at 3:00 am and the second was at 4:45 am.

Police have arrested 30-year-old Travis Byrne of Corner Brook. Byrne attended court on Friday to answer to charges of break and enter, theft under $5000.00, theft over $5000.00, mischief under $5000.00, and breach of probation.

Byrne, who was clearly identified on the store's surveillance footage, broke into the property via the front door and stole cash and tobacco. Byrne departed the store in a white SUV, which was observed on surveillance footage.

During the second break and enter, Byrne was again captured on surveillance, along with a second unknown masked individual. Stolen items, including cash, lottery pull tab tickets and several cartons of tobacco, were placed into a gym bag. Both departed on foot and were last seen heading across the Trans-Canada Highway.

The investigation is continuing as police search for the second individual.

Anyone having information about this crime is asked to contact Corner brook RCMP at 709-637-4433 or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
