    Would have to assume a local element as the thief on video knew exactly where to go for the cash. Place had to have been cased prior. Small time local thieves but brazen.

    He’s right

    A week or so ago, a similar news item appeared and some comments were aimed at party goers and revelers at Zwick’s Park as being responsible. As I stated then, I still think it is a local effort and the place to start the hunt is here and not in Belleville. Whoever is doing this knows the area and who is and who is not around during the times of these break-ins. I hope they are caught and exposed to the community – these people are starting to cheese me off big time. This is the County – not Toronto!
