Suspects at large after Cranbrook home invasion

RCMP seek three after incident on the evening of December 18.

  • Dec. 19, 2013 1:00 p.m.

On December 18, shortly after 9 p.m., the RCMP communications center received an abandoned 911 call from a residence on 1st Avenue South in Cranbrook.

Nothing was heard on call back so officers were dispatched to the house to check.  Once on scene they learned there had been a home invasion by two males and female wearing masking and involving firearms.

Three people were in the residence when they heard a knock at the door. One answered it and two males barged in, both carrying firearms. The occupant got into brief physical confrontation with one male in an attempt to direct the gun muzzle away.

A 911 call was made by another occupant who heard the altercation, prior to being directed by the males into another room.

Theinvaders quickly realized the person they were looking for was not there.  They demanded cash and anything else of value from the occupants.  The subject fled with several electronic devices and a snowboard.

The suspects are described as follows;

• Male — 5 feet, 11 inches, very slim, wearing all black including gloves and balaclava;

• Male — 5 feet, 7 inches, very slim, pale complexion, wearing a half mask bandana and all black clothing;

• Female — short, dark complexion, half mask bandana and all black clothing.

The investigation is ongoing, if anybody had information about this crime, please contact the Crabnrook  RCMP at 250 489-3471 or Crimestoppers.
