Two would-be thieves reportedly were caught in the act on April 28 at Suspender’s.

RCMP received a call of a possible break and enter after the alarm at the store was tripped.

Within seven minutes, RCMP were at the store, and on suspect was caught immediately by the members, with a second fleeing into the bushes.

A search in the forest then led to the apprehension of the second suspect.

The pair had reportedly gained entry into the store via an office window, taken alcohol, cigarettes and some coins in cash amounting to about $140.

The two suspects are both youth and can not be identified, and have been released until they appear in court to face charges of break and enter with intent to commit theft and theft under $5,000.
