New Westminster police are looking for two men who broke into mailboxes in a Sapperton apartment building Jan. 5.

The first suspect is a Caucasian, 25 to 35 years old with a dark complexion, average build and was wearing a black jacket with a fur hood collar, dark jeans, white Nike shoes and carrying a black messenger bag. The second has a lighter complexion and average build wearing a grey hoodie, black jacket with a distinct logo on the back, dark jeans, black and white shoes, and carry a black duffel bag.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Const. Jeff Russell at 604-525-5411 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
