The RCMP is investigating a number of break and enters in Cornwall early Thursday morning.

Sgt. Leanne Butler said Leary's Independent grocery store was broken into around 4 a.m. when someone smashed their way into the store, triggering the alarm.

The thief made off with lottery tickets and cigarettes.

Butler said there were also a number of vehicles in the area that were broken into around the same time but it’s too early to say whether the two incidents are connected.

“Anything out of the ordinary that the public may have seen or can tell us would be much appreciated,’’ Butler said.
