Sylvan Lake RCMP are looking for two suspects they say hid in Canadian Tire after it closed Feb. 5.

A male and a female left the store around 9:30 p.m. through a back door carrying two large white boxes, and might have fled the scene in a dark hatchback car, police say.

Police obtained video surveillance of the incident, and are trying to identify the suspects responsible.

Anyone with information on the crime is asked to contact the Sylvan Lake RCMP detachment at 403-858-7200, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Police are reminding other local businesses to check their store for people before closing to prevent similar crimes from taking place in the future.
