NORTH DUNDAS — Failed break-in artists tried to smash their way into Chesterville’s LCBO outlet during Art on the Waterfront weekend. But police are working to enhance surveillance video of the suspects involved in the unsuccessful attempt overnight, June 3-4.

A storefront window was broken when struck by a concrete block in the incident involving potentially two males and one female, according to the SD&G OPP. A Nation Valley News photograph of the scene revealed a bowling-ball-sized circular hole in the window with a block lying on the floor within the entrance vestibule.  Only the projectile made it past the glass; the would-be thieves never got in.

Const. Joel Doiron confirmed the existence of  “poor quality” video, adding that techs are trying to enhance the footage. If successful, police will release improved images to try to identify the culprits.
