Some daring break and enters in the city's south side.
Police report that in two incidents thieves unsuccessfully tried to steal a couple of safes.
In the first case over the weekend at a South Syndicate Ave office, the safe had simply been moved, but a day later, when police responded to a break in at Victoriaville Mall, a safe was found suspended in a skylight area of the ceiling by metal fencing.
Police did not say whether the two incidents are related.

Southcore B&E to Businesses
The Thunder Bay Police Service is investigating two reported cases of break and enters to businesses, one in which a suspect or suspects attempted to steal a safe.
An investigation revealed that a suspect or suspects gained entry through a broken window between noon December 2 and 8 a.m. December 3. A cash tray had been pried open. An investigation also revealed a second nearby business had been entered in a similar fashion.
Just after 6:30 a.m. on December 4, Thunder Bay Police Service officers responded toa break and enter at the Victoriaville Mall (P17074103). Officers arrived and found a safe suspended in a skylight area of the ceiling by metal fencing. Officers recalled the previous break and enter reports to a nearby business (P17073998) in which a safe appeared to have been moved, but not taken, during a break and enter.
The investigation into both of these break and enters continues.
