Following a robbery early this morning at Dawson Creek’s Aurora Inn, in which two thieves stole a hard drive containing sensitive information, police are advising anyone who may have stayed there to notify their credit card companies that their information could have been compromised.
Around 2:30 AM this morning, the suspects in the case, a man and a woman wearing balaclavas, allegedly entered the Aurora Inn.
One of the suspects robbed the night manager, holding what appeared to be an imitation style rifle and took an undisclosed amount of cash.
The suspects then took the computer tower — contained on the hard drive was the video surveillance and hotel records, and included both client credit card and personal information.
Police are seeking the public’s assistance in this matter, and anyone who may have information relating to this robbery is asked to contact the Dawson Creek RCMP.
Crimestoppers can also be called at 1-800-222-8477, if you wish to remain anonymous.
