Red Deer RCMP are investigating a robbery after thieves stole a limited edition Robert Bateman print, cash and electronics from a home in Highland Green in Red Deer between May 16 to 19.

Police say a witness saw a man and woman approach the house several times within a short period of time. The suspects drove a small, older model truck that was a dark, dull blue colour and had equipment in the truck box.

The residents were not home at the time.

The robbers stole electronics, cash and a large art print of a grizzly bear and two cubs.

The art is a limited edition print, #331, and has been signed by the artist, Robert Bateman. The number on the print makes it uniquely identifiable as stolen property.

The female suspect is described as Caucasian, 25 to 35 years of age, between 1.5 m (5 feet) and 1.64 m (5 feet 4 inches) tall with brown hair tied back in a ponytail looped over on itself.

She has an average build and was wearing jeans and a casual shirt with a small-brimmed hat.

The male suspect is described as short and dark with very curly hair.

He was thin with a non-athletic build.

He was wearing jeans and a t-shirt.

The man was seen from behind so his ethnicity is unknown.
