On Feb. 18, police were called to McDonald’s at 2:30 a.m. after two men wearing masks forced the lone employee into a walk-in cooler and tried to break into a safe, but were unsuccessful.

The two fled on foot.

Police say no weapons were involved and the employee was not hurt.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 250-642-5752 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
