Ottawa police are searching for a black pickup truck and a white luxury SUV that investigators believe were involved in a series of break-ins at homes in two suburbs earlier this month.

A police spokesperson said Tuesday investigators have linked the vehicles to eight homes in Kanata and Orléans that were broken into on Feb. 4 and Feb. 5 during the daytime.

A spokesperson couldn’t confirm the items stolen from the homes but said the suspects did make off with valuables in all cases.

Ottawa police believe three or four men were involved in the break-ins.

Two of the men are believed to be between 20 and 40 years old and are captured in images wearing dark clothing.

Police said descriptions of the other one or two suspects aren’t available.
