On September 17, 2019, just before midnight, New-Wes-Valley RCMP received a call of a home invasion in the community of Centreville. An unknown man wearing all black entered the residence armed with a shot gun, fired two shots, stole some property and departed the residence.
Police attended the scene. The man was further described as having a thin build and was wearing gloves and a helmet with a bandanna and goggles.
