Nova Scotia RCMP are investigating an incident of theft at a hardware store in Upper Tantallon, N.S.
According to police, the break-and-enter at the unnamed store took place overnight between Nov. 11 and Nov. 12.
The thieves made off with what police described as a “large amount of merchandise,” including power tools and air tools.
