A third major break-in to storage sheds at the Creston Golf Course since summer once again has police taking statements about stolen items, primarily golf clubs, Creston RCMP Cpl. Gerry Sliworsky said on Monday.

“There were nearly 20 sheds affected,” he said.

Once a building that houses a number of units is entered by breaking or cutting a lock, thieves can easily move from one unit to the other, Sliworsky said.

The first two break-ins (first, second) took place in July.
