At least one person was taken to hospital, treated for exposure to pepper spray, after a home invasion in Langley City on Monday morning (Dec. 29).

Police say the people in the residence are known to police and the crime is believed to be drug-related.
The suspects fled and numerous officers and a police dog services searched the area, including Linwood Park. But no suspects were found during that search.
Police initially asked people in the area to stay inside to help facilitate the tracking process.
