RCMP are looking to identify a pair of suspects involved in a break and enter to a school in Ponoka County.

On Monday, Mounties responded to the B&E at the Mamawi Atosketan School, though it was during the previous evening they say two unknown suspects entered the school damaging numerous windows.

The suspects took school computers and food items worth more than $5,000.

Police say a white cargo van was located north of the school and the investigation determined that the van was stolen out of the Maskwacis area. The van contained the stolen computers and food, all of which were accounted for and returned to the school. 

The school's website says due to the investigation, the school will be closed until Thursday, February 23.

Maskwacis RCMP also advised that a second similar van had been stolen from the Samson Trade Centre.

If you have any information about this incident, call Ponoka RCMP at 403-783-4472 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

LOCATED: Angie Beaverbones, 31, of Innisfail
