The first incident happened in June 2019 when police responded to a break-in at East Coast Buy and Sell on Herring Cove Road. A man fled the scene with electronics.

The next incidents didn't happen until last Monday when police responded to three separate calls

There was a theft at TJ's Grocery in Halifax. Two men fled with cigarettes and money, but no one was injured.
