FLETCHERS LAKE: RCMP are searching for two unknown men following a home invasion in the early morning hours of Jan. 6 in Fletchers Lake.

Cpl. Dal Hutchinson, spokesman with Halifax District RCMP, said late on the afternoon of Jan. 6 that police received a call at 2:30 a.m. of the incident taking place at a residence on Lorne Paul Drive, which is off of Holland Road.
