Break in at Oranj Fitness in Castlegar

The owners of Oranj Fitness are offering a reward for anyone with information that leads to the arrest of whoever broke into their studio.

A local fitness studio experienced a break in on Sunday night.

A yoga instructor arrived at Oranj Fitness on Monday morning to find glass from the front door laying broken on the sidewalk. Unfortunately the studio’s alarm never went off.

“There was some kind of fault with our alarm system, so it didn’t go off,” said Sheila Chutskoff, owner.

A safe and cash were stolen, and extensive damage was done to windows and doors inside the building.

Chutskoff and her fellow owner and sister Mandy are offering a reward for anyone who can offer information leading to the arrest of the thief.

“Today we posted on our Facebook page that if anyone knows who did it or can send us some leads to their arrest, we’ll give a two-year unlimited membership, so that’s valued at $3000, and a $2000 shopping spree at our studio. Obviously we’ll keep it confidential,” said Chutskoff. “We’re definitely putting some money up to hopefully catch who did that.”

Anyone with information can contact the RCMP at 250-365-7721 or Oranj Fitness at info@oranjfitness.com.
