Two attempted grow rips in two days have prompted RCMP to ask for the public’s help.

Shortly after 1:30 p.m. March 2, Mission RCMP responded to a 911 call of a home invasion in progress in the 32000-block of Beaver Drive.

The alleged suspect(s) kicked in the front door of the residence then fled after being confronted by the homeowner. Police later found an illicit marijuana grow operation.

RCMP believe the residence was being targeted, said Cpl. Sharon Siluch, adding there were young children living there.

The male suspect is described as approximately six feet tall with his face covered. Witnesses describe seeing a boxy-looking car. The police are looking for a vehicle described as a black, four-door car with silver trim around the outer door.

Early morning March 4, RCMP were called to break and enter in progress in the 32000-block of McRae Avenue. The homeowner interrupted two alleged suspects who appeared to be targeting this residence as it, too, had an illicit marijuana grow operation.

The alleged suspects were described as young males, one with very dark skin, and both wearing/ dressed in all black.

Mission RCMP urge everyone who has information in relation to either of these investigations, or any crime, to please contact the Mission Detachment at 604-826-7161 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
