“Shortly before 3 p.m. on June 6, a homeowner in her rural residence heard intruders in her home. Two males were inside the residence, and when confronted by the homeowner, both fled and departed in a truck which had a third male in it.

“The suspect males are described as:

“Suspect #1

“Suspect #3

“Suspect Vehicle: – Older model red Dodge Ram pick up truck, single cab with rust on the rear of the vehicle. Alberta license plate on the truck believed to be KTW849.

“The homeowner believes that the male driving the truck had a handgun in his hand as they were fleeing the property. This information has not been verified. RCMP made patrols of the area and did not locate the suspect vehicle or suspects.

“The homeowner was not injured during this incident and no property was taken from the home.
