NEW MINAS, N.S. – It didn’t take long for a break-and-enter suspect targeting a local veterinary clinic to have a change of heart.

Police say members from the New Minas RCMP detachment were called to the clinic on Commercial Street at 12:45 a.m. Feb. 6.

“Surveillance footage shows a man wearing gloves and a dark-coloured hoodie using a tool to pry the door open. The man entered the building, then ran from the scene and left the area in a vehicle, headed down Commercial Street,” a release from Nova Scotia RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jennifer Clarke reads.

“Police suspect the very loud, audible alarm in the building caused him to reconsider his intentions.”

Nothing was taken from the scene of the alleged break-and-enter incident. The investigation is ongoing.

Police are urging anyone with information to contact Kings District RCMP at 902-679-5555. Anonymous tips can be placed through Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.
