Red Deer RCMP are trying to identify two male teenagers who twice broke into a Red Deer business and caused damage.

The teens vandalized items at a metal recycling business in Edgar Industrial Park, the second time setting a fire.

The pair was caught on camera the night of Sept. 14 inside the yard at Tervita Metals Recycling, breaking windows and lights on machinery and setting off fire extinguishers.

On Sept. 28, the two returned and lit a storage container on fire after pouring oil on it. Fortunately, the fire did not spread through the property.

One suspect is described as a teenage boy, slim build, dark hair, appears to be short around the ears and wearing a Saskatchewan Roughriders ballcap both times, an oversized green jacket or hoodie once, and an oversized blue hooded jacket the second time.

The second suspect is described as teenage boy, slim to average build, wearing a dark blue hoodie, with large white lettering across the chest, and a dark-coloured hat or cap.

RCMP are not releasing surveillance images of these teens, but ask anyone with information regarding these crimes to contact the Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575.

If you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1.800.222.8477 or report it online at www.tipsubmit.com.
