HALIFAX -- Halifax Regional Police say they’re investigating after two men broke into a Dartmouth home, stealing from the residents while one carried a gun.

Police say at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, they were called to a break-and-enter in progress in the 100-block of Princess Margaret Blvd.

According to HRP, two masked men dressed in black, one armed, forced their way into a home, stealing items. Police say the suspects fled in a white four-door car towards Windmill Rd., and managed to evade police.

Nobody was injured, and the suspects are described as:

  • One man approximately 6 feet tall with a heavy build, wearing a black jacket and black pants, with a black ski mask.
  • Another man, about 5’7 with a thin build, also wearing a black jacket, black pants, and black ski mask.
