A theft from the Michael Hill jewelry store in Cherry Lane Shopping Centre on May 12 prompted RCMP to seek the public’s help in solving the crime.
According to Staff Sgt. Bob Vatamaniuck, police were alerted at about 1 p.m. that a theft had just taken place.
He said a male reportedly asked to look at a number of items and when they were unprotected, grabbed a handful of them and fled out the nearest exit.
Waiting for him outside the shopping centre was another person behind the wheel of a white Ford pickup truck. The license plate did not match the vehicle.
The RCMP are calling the theft a crime of opportunity are asking for any help in identifying the people involved. Anyone with information, or able to help identify the man and woman shown in the security camera photos, is asked to call the detachment at 250-492-4300 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
“Police are asking for any information someone may have about this event and are asking the public to help identify the male and female in the attached pictures who police believe have some information about the offence,” said Vatamaniuck in a news release.
