Police looking for two men after guns stolen from New Westminster home

Guns were secured properly at the time of the theft, police said

Police are looking for two men suspected of breaking into a New Westminster home on Tuesday morning.

Officers responded to reports of a break-in at about 9:20 a.m. in the area of Ewen Avenue and Wood Street.

A woman told them two masked men broke into her home and found a gun safe. One guarded her while another opened the safe and stole two long guns. Police said the guns were secured at the time of the break-in.

The men left in an older model red Honda CR-V that was missing the front right hub cap.

“This appears to be a targeted and isolated event; however, we are looking for witnesses and anyone with video surveillance,” said Sgt. Jeff Scott in a news release on Wednesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 604-525-5411.
