FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Last month, the Fort St. John RCMP received a report of a break, enter, and theft occurring at the local Walmart.

The RCMP says at approximately 3:30 a.m. on August 22nd, five youths broke into Walmart and stole boxes of stock that were then strewn around the parking lot.

They also climbed onto the roof of the building.

The Fort St. John RCMP requests the public’s assistance in identifying the youth suspects.
