Richmond RCMP asking for public’s help in identifying break-in suspects

Richmond RCMP has released the images of three suspects believed to be involved in multiple break-ins at the same address last fall.  

The two break-ins, which police believe to be targeted, took place at a residence in the 11000 block of Oldfield Avenue in November — the first on Nov. 18, 2019, and the second 10 days later, on Nov. 28, 2019.

On Nov. 18, a Richmond woman in her 30s at the Oldfield Avenue property found herself pushed to the ground after two armed men, posing as Richmond city bylaw officers, forced their way in shortly after 5:30 p.m, according to police at the time. The two suspects left in a dark SUV before RCMP arrived at the scene. 

And on Nov. 27, the thieves broke into the residence through the front door, and fled in a U-Haul with stolen property, RCMP said at the time. That van was later reported stolen.

In a release Thursday, RCMP said the original investigation focused on two suspects, but now police believe three suspects may be involved. Police have now released security camera images of each of the three suspects (photos of suspects are in the gallery above).

If anyone has any information about these incidents or the suspects depicted, contact Const. K. Deshane of the Richmond RCMP General Investigation Section, and quote file number 2019-37989. Alternatively, email RCMP at Richmond_Tips@rcmp-grc.gc.ca
