There was a break-in at the Department of National Defence compound in Inuvik last Friday.

Police say there was little damage to the vehicle or compound, and that nothing else was taken from the building.

Inuvik RCMP have surveillance footage of the incident, but have not yet identified a suspect. Police are working with the Department of National Defence to investigate the incident.

Inuvik RCMP are asking anyone with information to contact them at (867) 777-1111 or to call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
