Thieves stole $10,000 worth of electronics from The Source store in Summerland on the weekend.

They rammed their way through the front door with a truck before grabbing gaming electronics and laptop computers.

The front of the store, located at 13604 Victoria Rd. North, #14 in Sungate Plaza, received heavy damage when the truck smashed through glass, metal and brick of the storefront.

Once inside the thieves loaded up on video games, gaming consoles from PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo, as well as handheld consoles.

Store manager Ryan York said the thieves used a chain tied to the truck to rip out the door.

The thieves were filling garbage cans with loot when they suddenly departed, leaving the cans behind.

Sgt. Mona Kauffeld of the Summerland RCMP said the alarm was triggered at the Source at 3:35 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 9.

Two men were involved in the break-in, which was caught on videotape. The pickup truck used in the theft was a Ford.

Kauffeld said RCMP are actively investigating the break-in. Anyone with information can contact the Summerland RCMP at 250-494-7416 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-TIPS (8477).
