According to Thorsby RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Rob Gillies, “The Thorsby RCMP are investigating a home invasion which occurred June 6, and seeking public assistance in identifying the three male suspects.

“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

– Wearing a black hoodie, black sweatpants and black backwards baseball cap

“Suspect #2

“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.

“Drayton Valley RCMP GIS are assisting in this investigation.
