Home invasion in Kitimat being investigated by RCMP, info sought

The Kitimat RCMP are seeking information that may help them track down two suspects in a morning home invasion in Kitimat.

Corporal Darryl Peppler with the Kitimat RCMP tells the Sentinel that it is believed that this morning’s home invasion on Nalabila Boulevard may be drug related.

He explained that the two masked suspects are alleged to have knocked on the door, and when someone came to open the door, that’s when the suspects forced themselves in and used their pepper spray.

He said three people in the home were treated after the incident.

“It is believed to be drug related,” said Peppler.

He added that the three people who were treated are known to police, but he didn’t elaborate on how. The victims told police that they did not know who the alleged attackers were.
