The RCMP is asking the public for tips as they try to find three armed suspects involved in a home invasion south of Edmonton.

In a news release issued Friday afternoon, police said the break-in occurred overnight in Beaumont.

“The victims report that they woke up to a loud crash and three unknown males entered their home brandishing weapons,” the RCMP said, adding the home invasion occurred at 12:30 a.m. Friday.

“After demanding and taking items from the homeowners, it appears that the suspects realized that they were in the wrong home and left.”

Police said the suspects left the home and drove away in a light-coloured SUV crossover, believed to be a Hyundai Kona.

Later on Friday morning, the RCMP said a “similar vehicle” was found burnt south of Beaumont. They added the vehicle is believed to have been stolen in south Edmonton on Dec. 9.
