Jesse Thompson, owner at Market Avenue’s Fresh Tracks Outdoors Club, said thieves made away with between $15,000 and $25,000 worth of crossbows and designer sunglasses.

Details were still emerging as Mounties made their way through the business at around 8 a.m. The storefront’s floor-to-ceiling glass door had been smashed in. Thompson said he hoped store cameras caught the burglars on tape.

Fresh Tracks opened its doors at 239 Market Ave. on Nov. 1, 2020.
