When Kerby Tang stopped by his Shellbrook, Sask., gas station early Saturday morning to check in after his security alarm went off, he was amazed at the disarray both inside and outside.

Shelves of gas station goodies had been toppled, the Tempo station's coffee counter demolished, the north wall of the building dislodged and a door, torn off its hinges, was on the ground.

"I didn't realize at the time what could have caused that type of mess," Tang said.

Once he saw the security footage from around 4 a.m., the cause of the mess quickly came into focus: a truck had backed up to the store, two people got out and one ran to wrap a tow rope around the ATM inside.

5 inmates charged with murder after 2016 Saskatchewan Penitentiary riot

  5 inmates charged with murder after 2016 Saskatchewan Penitentiary riot Five inmates have been charged with second-degree murder in the December 2016 riot at the Saskatchewan Penitentiary. Five prisoners have been charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder in a deadly riot at the Saskatchewan Penitentiary in Prince Albert.The Dec. 14, 2016, riot in the medium security unit, involving roughly 185 prisoners, left one inmate dead and eight injured.Six of those inmates suffered non-life threatening injuries after being hit by shotgun pellets as guards fired their guns in an effort to bring the situation under control.

The other person got back in the truck, revved it up and pulled the machine out, knocking down everything in its path.

"I've never seen anything quite like it, quite as violent and aggressive.… It's something you would see in the movies, not in a small town in central Saskatchewan," Tang said.

"It was pretty jaw-dropping."

'It was very invasive'

The surveillance video shows that all of this happened within less than a minute and a half.

Just 10 days earlier, on June 19, someone had tied a chain onto the front door and tore it off with a vehicle. All the criminals took were a few bags of chips, which is baffling to Tang.

That alone had been awful to deal with, he said.

"It was very invasive just seeing anyone in there, let alone what happened … with the ATM theft," he said.

These are the first major incidents Tang has encountered in the three years since he returned to Shellbrook — a town of about 1,300 that's 122 kilometres north of Saskatoon — after moving away.

They have put a sour taste in his mouth, even though he was intending to close the store for renovations on July 4 anyway.

The plan is for renovations to take place in the fall.

Shellbrook RCMP confirm they're investigating both incidents.

They said the truck seen in the surveillance video had been stolen from a local dealership earlier that day and was located by 10 a.m. in Parkside, a community 11 kilometres away.

Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers or the local RCMP detachment at 306-747-2606.
