OPP released information today about an investigation that was initiated on January 17th, when a cottager on Craig's Island, Sharbot Lake (west basin) contactedd them about damage to their cottage. Police have no information indicating a connection between these break ins and those that took place on Bobs Lake on January 12th, but the level of destruction was similar in both sets of incidents and in neither case does the motive seem to have been robbery, although a bush buggy was stolen in the Sharbot Lake incident.
