On Monday a second underground parkade in the Mission was targeted by thieves.

Several vehicles parked in the underground parkade of a building on the 600 block of Lequime Road were broken into. The suspects made away with a garage door remote, a wallet containing ID, a passport, sunglasses and change. The suspects also targeted the building's mail room but police have yet to confirm if any items were taken.

The two suspects were caught on the building's surveillance camera.

Police have also traced the suspects to a similar offence last April. RCMP received a report on April 27 when the underground parkade of a building on Casorso Road was broken into.

If you have any information that could help identify the suspects call Crime Stoppers’ anonymous tips line at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit their website at or text to CRIMES (274637), keyword Ktown.
