At approximately 11 a.m., on Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2011, two men rang the doorbell at an address in the 8000 block of 20A Street S.E.
When the lone male occupant of the residence answered the door, he was threatened by one of the offenders who was carrying a gun and demanding firearms.
The suspects were shown where the firearms were located. They then tied up the occupant before leaving the residence with a number of weapons.
It is believed that they left the scene in a charcoal grey coloured, newer model Chevrolet pickup truck with chrome rims being driven by a third suspect.
The victim was able to free himself and alert police. He was not injured.
Suspect one is described as a Caucasian man, 5’10 to 6’ tall, 20-30 years old, wearing a baseball cap with red markings, sunglasses, blue jeans, black jacket and gloves.
The second suspect is 20 to 30 years old, approximately 6’ tall, wearing a “ghost” mask, blue jeans, black jacket, gloves, and spoke with a foreign accent.
Police are in the process of working with the victim to determine exactly what was stolen. However, early indications suggest that as many as 12 registered firearms have been taken.
Police believe this was a targeted offence and not random. However, the owner/s of the weapons are not known to police.
