West Kelowna - Police are releasing composite sketches of two individuals believed to be involved in a pair of break-ins last month in hopes that the public can help identify them.

On November 25, 2013 at 12:41 pm, the West Kelowna RCMP received a report of a break and enter on the 3100 block of Twin Place. Entry had been gained through a ground-floor window and nearly every room in the house was ransacked. The police investigation identified a second residence just a few doors down that had also been broken into.

Earlier that day, police had received a report of two suspicious men in the area. They were apparently going door to door saying that they were searching for their lost dog. Witnesses were able to provide a description of the suspects and police are now releasing their composite sketches.

Suspect 1 was described as:

  • Caucasian
  • About 5'7" with a slim build
  • Brown hair
  • Full beard

Suspect 2 was described as:

  • Caucasian
  • 6' tall
  • Clean shaven
  • Wearing jeans
