One man remains in custody after a truck was used during two business break-ins Sunday morning.

According to RCMP, officers responded at 5:50 a.m. to an attempted break-in at General Paint located at Discovery Harbour Mall. The culprits had tied a rope to the front doors and then attempted to pull them off using the truck. However, the attempt failed and they fled the scene before officers arrived. However, the vehicle had struck a concrete pillar in front of the entrance and physical evidence was left at the scene, according to Sgt. Craig Massey.

Then, at 6:20 a.m., the same truck was allegedly used to break into the Willows Beer and Wine Store on Rockland Road. This time the truck was able to back through the front entry and a quantity of liquor was stolen. Shortly later, a truck was stopped by police and two suspects arrested. Lorne Seitz, 46, of Campbell River is charged with two counts of break and enter, taking a vehicle without consent, and failing to comply with a court  order.

Roderick Jurriet is charged with two counts of breach of probation. He was released from custody and is due back in court on May 9. Seitz remains in custody after he was denied bail on Monday by Judge Brian Saunderson. His next court appearance, by video, is also on May 9.
