Break-and-enter suspects used stolen vehicle

July 23, 2019, Lockeport, Nova Scotia . . . On July 19 at 2:30 a.m., Shelburne RCMP responded to a break and enter at a business in Lockeport.

Entry to the business was gained by prying open the back door. Two men entered the store, stole a garbage bin, and left. Their images were captured on surveillance video, however their faces were covered while they were in the store.

The suspects are described as:

Suspect 1 – Heavy set white male wearing light coloured work boots, dark pants and a black hoodie with a ‘Browning’ crest on the chest. He has a small tattoo on his right hand near the thumb.

Suspect 2 – Heavy set male, wearing a light coloured coat, possibly white, with black on the arms, jeans, and hiking shoes

Video surveillance from the store identified a grey GMC extended cab pickup truck that was driven by the suspects. Police determined later that day that the same truck had been reported stolen from a residence in Sable River. It was recovered on July 21, not far from the business and was examined by the Southwest Nova RCMP Forensic Identification Section.
