WINNIPEG, MB. - Manitoba RCMP have released several photos on suspects wanted in connection with Break-Ins.
On Friday, November 24, this year around 3:45 am, Carman RCMP received a call about an alarm being set off at the gas bar in Elm Creek. Police arrived and discovered the back door had been forced open and numerous items stolen, including a large sum of cigarettes.
Police said this crime followed a very similar Break and Enter to the gas bar located in Portage la Prairie approximately 45 minutes earlier where the suspects attempted to steal cigarettes.
On December 3, Carman RCMP responded to another Break and Enter at the gas bar in Carman. This time, the two suspects gained entry through the front door and stole numerous lottery tickets.
RCMP said in a release they believe all Break and Enters are connected.
Security cameras installed in the store in Elm Creek captured two suspects gaining entry into the business. They are then seen leaving the store and getting into a silver colored SUV which had earlier been reported stolen out of Winnipeg.
One suspect is described as a male, heavier set, wearing a black jacket, lighter colored pants, gloves, and dark colored balaclava. The second suspect appears to be thin, wearing blue jeans and a grey sweatshirt. The suspects used a pink colored Rubbermaid container to load up items stolen from the store.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Carman RCMP at 204-745-6760 or call Manitoba Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
