Authorities searching for Bigfork burglary suspects

KALISPELL, Mont. - The Flathead County Sheriff's Office is looking for help in finding two burglary suspects.

When the store manager for Bigfork United Rentals arrived at work Tuesday morning, he was greeted by an unpleasant surprise.

Bigfork United Rentals store manager Jamie, who asked us not to use his last name, described to us what he saw when he walked in to work on Wednesday morning.

"I came in and noticed that all of our files were open, all of our drawers were pulled open, and so immediately I went to the cash door and that was empty.  And so we checked the business next door and realized their door had been kicked in and that's how they got in through our building and came in through our side," Jamie said.

Authorities tell us two men, who have yet to be identified, burglarized several Bigfork area businesses.

Also broken into was the Bigfork Senior Center, where two suspects allegedly backed their car into the door, cracked some of the foundation and caused damage estimated at $6,000 to $8,000.

"Those burglaries were all related, and we were able to -- through video surveillance footage -- to develop some suspects.  We are asking for the public's help in identifying these suspects.  We're certain out there someone knows them," said Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry.

Police say the two used the stolen credit card at Walmart later in the night after the burglaries.

You can also call Flathead Crime Stoppers at 406-752-8477.  You can remain anonymous when giving information and still be eligible for a cash reward.
