Red Deer, Alberta – Red Deer RCMP are looking for public assistance to identify two men who pried open a security gate at a store in the Bower Mall and stole five bags of merchandise on Monday morning before the mall opened.
The break and enter occurred at approximately 8:45 am on March 7, before the stores in the mall opened. Two men entered the mall through the east entrance and proceeded to Journey Shoes, where they were able to raise the metal security gate. Inside the store, they loaded a number of backpacks with merchandise, including watches, sunglasses, hats, shoes and sweaters. The suspects left by the same east entrance and were seen driving away in a white Chevrolet Silverado truck. The truck had a lift kit and a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon decal on it. The license plate, which was taken down by a number of helpful witnesses, was not a match to the truck.
The suspects were described as being between 5’5” and 5’8” tall; both wore black jackets or hoodies; one had white gothic lettering on the back of his jacket, and one had facial hair.
If you have any information about this break and enter, please contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403.343.5575.
