The Salvation Army Thrift Store located at 185 Manitoba St. in Bracebridge has been hit by vandalism as the window has been broken. 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 9:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. Police were notified Wednesday morning.
Residents and business owners in the area are encouraged to check dash cameras and security cameras in the area.
