Police are asking the public for help to identify the suspects captured on security camera footage within the building.

The footage shows two individuals — an man and a woman — both wearing black baseball caps and face masks attempting to pry open personal mailboxes. The female suspect has long hair and is dressed all in black, wearing blue gloves, while the male  is wearing jeans and a grey and blue t-shirt, holding a red duffel bag.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or bccrimestoppers.com.
