Halifax police are investigating a daytime armed break-in where they say two men forced their way into a Dartmouth home and stole from the residents.

At 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, Halifax Regional Police responded to a report of a break-in in the 100 block of Princess Margaret Boulevard, according to a release.

Two masked suspects dressed in black, one with a firearm, broke into a home and took items from the people inside.

The suspects fled in a white four-door car toward Windmill Road.

Multiple patrol officers and an emergency response team responded. They searched the residence and confirmed no one was injured.

Suspects wore black clothing, ski masks

While searching for the suspects, police found a long-barrelled firearm on the street near the residence.

But officers did not find the suspects or their vehicle.

Police have not released details about how many residents were inside the home, or what was stolen.

The suspects are described as male, one about six feet tall with a heavy build, while the second was about five-foot-seven with a thin build.

Both were wearing black jackets and pants, with black ski masks.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call police at 902-490-5020. People can also send an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-8477.
