Police hope surveillance footage of someone using their truck like a battering ram to break into at least three west side Saskatoon businesses will lead them to the culprit.
Alyson Edwards with the Saskatoon Police Service says surveillance cameras taped an incident at a gas station on 33rd Street West on Monday. The quality of the footage is good.
"We've put it on our website, hoping that someone recognizes either the suspect, or the suspect vehicle," said Edwards.
The string of three smash and grabs started back on Sept. 7 at a lounge on Northumberland Avenue. The most recent happened Tuesday morning when a video store on Confederation Drive was hit.
"It was not worth their while, but it's an inconvenience for our customers, and our staff. We feel violated. This is a family place," said Cathleen Fehr, who works at the store. She says they didn't get away with much.
While still hauling away shards of glass and slats of broken wood, Peter Nesbitt said he thinks the outcome could have been a lot worse at the video store he's helping clean up.
"Good thing there wasn't a night janitor, someone working there when it happened. Somebody could've really got hurt," said Nesbitt.
There's been lots of damage, but no one has been hurt.
