Ponoka RCMP are looking for five male suspects in a home invasion in Morningside.

At approximately 2 a.m. on June 24 police say the men entered the home and restrained and robbed two occupants. Police were alerted to the incident after receiving a 911 call.

The two residents were located in the home with minor injuries resulting from an altercation that occurred in the home.

Further investigations revealed that the men entered the home with a firearm and restrained the two victims. Further to the invasion the suspects took five firearms, coins and a 1995 maroon Dodge Ram that belonged to the victims.

This was a targeted incident, say police.

The men are all described as smaller in stature, one was wearing a ball cap, and two others wearing hoodies with their faces covered.

The stolen truck has an Alberta license plate: RAT 594. If the vehicle is located police advise calling 911 immediately and not approach.

Ponoka RCMP are actively seeking information from the public.
