Police believe both men are associated with Eric Maurice Cardinal, 27, who is wanted by Terrace RCMP for assault, theft under $500 and two counts of breach of an undertaking.
Police are also looking for a stolen vehicle in connection to the search for the three men. It's a 2005 Hyundai XG350 four-door sedan white in colour with BC licence plate "101 WWK".
"The Prince George RCMP believes these men likely have access to firearms and are threats to the community. All three men are prolific offenders, have lengthy criminal histories and should be considered armed and dangerous," a police statement released today stated.
