No injuries were reported, however, police said those inside the home refused to co-operate with officers.

Police said they were able to obtain a description of the suspect vehicle from neighbours, but were unable to locate it at the time despite officers making extensive patrols in the area.

The suspect vehicle was located that afternoon by patrol officers, but it took off at a high rate of speed when they tried to stop it, RCMP said.
