A local business is looking for the public’s help.

Early yesterday morning, two individuals broke into the REMR Roofing office at 2053 Highway 17 East. REMR Roofing says that the individuals must be familiar with the building, as they went directly for the safe and business cheques located in a specific location. One hour later, the individuals returned to steal office computers.

“This robbery will have an enormous impact on our business operations and it is our belief that this was the intention as countless items of significant value were completely ignored,” the business said in a Facebook post.

REMR Roofing is asking for the public’s assistance in locating their main office computer, even if it’s only the tower. They are offering a $2,500 reward for its return, no questions asked. The business captured the entire robbery on video and were threatening to post the video if the culprits did not come forward. Later in the day, the business did post the video of the robbery on their Facebook page. The link to the video can be found below. 

“We are deeply devastated by this and hope to return to serving the community we call home as soon as possible,” they continued. 

If anyone has any information regarding this incident, they are asked to contact REMR Roofing at 807-548-2811, the Kenora Detachment of the OPP at 807-548-5534 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
