RCMP look for help identifying shoplifting suspects

Police allege suspects stole $2,500 worth of products over five weeks

Red Deer RCMP are looking for help identifying a male suspect who allegedly stole more than $2,500 worth of products from various stores over the past five weeks.

Police also want to identify a female accomplice who was with the man on one occasion.

The male suspect is reported to have stolen $240 worth of products from a drug store on Jan. 15 and then an additional $400 worth of products from the same store on Feb. 14.

On Feb. 18, the suspect was caught on camera again at another store, this time accompanied by a female. On this occasion, the pair are alleged to have stolen approximately $1,900 worth of product. Products stolen were grooming, personal care, perfume and cosmetic items.

RCMP wish to remind the public that if you’re being offered the opportunity to purchase brand name cosmetics at discounted rates from individuals rather than from a legitimate business, you are almost certainly dealing with stolen property.

“Further, it is a crime to purchase an item if you believe it is stolen property,” said police.

“Purchasing stolen property rewards criminal activity and contributes to increased property theft and related crimes including stolen vehicles, drugs, weapons and violent crimes.”

If you recognize these suspects or have information about this investigation, please contact Red Deer RCMP at 403-343-5575. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or report it at www.tipsubmit.com.
