Crime Stoppers needs your help in solving the following crime:

On Sunday September 2nd at 4 am, the Cap It store located at B – 2555 Port Alberni Highway was broken into.
The unknown suspect or suspects broke into the store through the front door. Once inside, the suspect or suspects moved about the front display area of the store stealing several items, some from a locked display, before leaving the same way they had entered. Some of the stolen property included 6 Go Pro cameras and several knives.
It appears that the suspect or suspects involved were in a black or dark coloured Ford F250 or F350 pickup truck with a canopy. A similar vehicle had been seen in the area earlier in the day preceding the break and enter. The vehicle was occupied with two men; one had a beard. The men were acting suspiciously and appeared to be casing out the establishment.
