RCMP in St. Albert, Alberta are asking the public for assistance in locating at least one man who broke into a cannabis store on St. Thomas Street on November 27 and 28.

Police say a suspect entered the store on November 27 at approximately 11:30 p.m, but did not appear to take any merchandise or property. Then at 7:30 the following morning a man entered the cannabis store by removing the repair on the broken glass window and unlocking the front door, leaving with a lighter and pre-rolled cannabis cigarettes.
