Suspects sought after break-in at Fort St. John rental agency

A Fort St. John business is looking for help identifying a pair of vandals and suspected thieves after a break-in early Monday morning.

The doors of Action Property Management were smashed shortly after 5 a.m. on February 4. Surveillance video shows the two suspects stepping over broken glass, and quickly rifling through the front office before fleeing.

The incident immediately triggered an alarm and police were called. Nothing was reported missing.

"The thieves went straight to the lock box so they were hoping to find money there I believe. Finding none and with the alarms going off they left," said Wanda Smook.

The break-in is captured over 18 seconds of security video.

One of the suspects was dressed in all white, with a "DC" brand logo on their pants, and carrying what appears to be a hammer. The other was wearing darker coloured clothing. Both suspects are wearing hoods and appear to be masked.

Fort St. John RCMP have not released any information, and were not immediately available to provide more details.

Anyone with information should contact the detachment at 250-787-8100, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
