Calgary Police has released CCTV footage to help identify the individuals they believe are responsible for a break and enter at a Southwest home.
On Tuesday, April 4, 2017, at approximately 4:20 pm, police were called to a residence located in the 0 to 100 block of Aspen Ridge Close SW, for a reported break and enter in progress.
“A woman, who was home with her two children, was inside her residence on the second storey when she heard a noise,” Calgary Police said in a statement.
“The woman checked outside her bedroom window, however couldn’t see anyone. As she left her room to check downstairs, she saw a man coming up the stairs. She immediately ran back into her room where her children were, locked the door and called 9-1-1. The offenders immediately left the residence and were gone before police arrived.”
After reviewing CCTV footage police identified a silver dodge avenger with three occupants inside.
The video shows one woman exiting the vehicle and knocking on the property’s patio door. When she received no answer she returned to the vehicle. At that time two men forced the door open using a crowbar and entered the house.
The men stole a winter coat and two sets of keys from the property and fled from the scene less than a minute later.
Police were able to identify the licence plate for the vehicle which had been reported stolen, and recovered the vehicle after the incident.
Now they are asking the public to help identify the suspects as well as the passengers of a black pickup truck that is shown on the CCTv footage to follow the stolen car.
According to Calgary Police the suspects are described as follows:
Anyone with information about this incident or the identities of the three suspects is asked to call the CPS non-emergency line at 403-266-1234. Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers on 1-800-222-8477
