Coquitlam RCMP needs help finding suspects who broke into apartment storage lockers in December

Mounties say two people stole thousands of dollars worth of items from about 20 lockers in Coquitlam

COQUITLAM (NEWS 1130) — After months of investigating, RCMP says it needs the public’s help to identify two suspects who apparently broke into apartment storage lockers, stealing thousands of dollars worth of belongings.

Mounties say the first break-in was reported last December at an apartment building on Guilford Way in Coquitlam. Shortly after, police say it became apparent about 20 storage lockers were broken into at that complex.

“It’s unusual to see this many storage lockers broken into at the same time, and as a result a lot of people have been victimized,” says Cpl. Michael McLaughlin. “But the quality of this security video is very good, and there’s a good chance someone is going to recognize these suspects and provide the key that will solve this crime.”

Police are still searching for the two suspects caught on surveillance camera.

One is a white man who is thought to be in his 30s with a narrow nose, close-set eyes, and beard stubble. He was wearing all black clothing at the time and a black baseball cap.

The other person is a white woman who is also believed to be in her 30s. She has long brown hair worn in two braids at the time and has a narrow face. She is seen wearing a red jacket and a New York Yankees baseball cap in the video.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Coquitlam RCMP non-emergency line at 604-945-1550 and ask for Const. Amarveer Ark (file 2019-37603). To remain anonymous and possibly collect a reward, people can also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or go through their website.
