Po­lice seek help af­ter a pair of break-ins over the last week

The Telegram (St. John’s) - - LOCAL -

An early morn­ing break-in Thurs­day at a busi­ness in St. John’s has po­lice look­ing for the own­ers of a burnt-out Jeep Com­pass.

The Royal New­found­land Con­stab­u­lary re­sponded to a break-in at Leg­end City on Ham­lyn Road, only to find the cul­prits gone, and the front win­dow smashed, and most of the con­tents of the busi­ness gone.

Af­ter re­view­ing se­cu­rity footage, po­lice de­ter­mined the male and fe­male sus­pects went off in a black Jeep Com­pass, re­cently stolen from a deal­er­ship in St. John’s.

The Jeep was later found by po­lice around noon on Thurs­day, burned near Grove’s Road.

Be­fore the Jeep was burned, the pair got into a grey, four-door Pon­tiac G6.

It’s be­lieved the same pair of rob­bers are also re­spon­si­ble for a sep­a­rate break-in at Arthur James, lo­cated in­side Cole­man’s Gro­cery on New­found­land Drive. In that in­ci­dent, the pair backed their Jeep near a win­dow, smashjing it out, and mak­ing off with a “high value” of sports­wear.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the break-ins, the iden­ti­ties of the man or woman, or about the grey Pon­tiac G6, is asked to con­tact po­lice or Crime Stop­pers.
