The Hampton RCMP is asking for the public's help to identify whoever was responsible for a break, enter and theft last week in St. Martins, N.B, just east of Saint John.

The theft is believed to have happened on Wednesday, September 21 between 5:00 and 5:30 a.m., at a construction site near the intersection of Main Street and Big Salmon River Road, according to Sgt. Tyson Nelson.
