The owner of a home north of the Bearspaw Country Club halted a suspected break-in attempt Sunday evening after calling out to the intruders.
RCMP officers responded to Alexa Close, in Rocky View County, at roughly 7 p.m. after the homeowner witnessed two vehicles park outside the home and two men approach the front door brandishing a crowbar. The suspects attempted to pry open the door but fled when the owner indicated that police had been called.
The suspects left the scene in a red Mitsubishi Endeavour and a black Nissan Pathfinder.
The first suspect is described as:
- A white male
- Having a slim build
- Wearing a red jacket with reflective stripes on forearms
- Wearing a black hooding
- Wearing a baseball cap
RCMP describe the second suspect as:
- A white male
- Having a thicker build
- Wearing a red polo shirt with the collar popped
According to RCMP, surveillance camera footage appears to indicate that the suspects visited the home approximately an hour prior to the break-in attempt while wearing service shirts.
Anyone who recognizes the suspects or has information regarding the attempted break-in is asked to contact the Cochrane RCMP detachment at 403-851-8000 or anonymous tips may be submitted to Crime Stoppers.
