Public Awareness Release Regarding Distraction Thefts

Public Awareness Release Regarding Distraction Thefts

Yesterday, February 2, 2024, the Brockville Police Service received multiple complaints regarding distraction thefts at various locations. The incident locations were reported from the Superstore, Food Basics and Giant Tiger. It is important to note that there could be others that have not yet been noticed or reported. Investigation revealed that two male suspects were involved. They can be observed in the photographs below for the best description. The suspects were targeting females and attempting to distract them in order to surreptitiously steal their purse or wallet. Multiple items were taken and fraudulent transactions were made on victims’ financial cards. In one incident at Food Basics, the victim became aware of what was happening and engaged in a tug-of-war over her purse. She was successful in retaining her purse and the suspects quickly fled.

These suspects are yet to be identified. Please be aware when out in public if you see anyone matching these descriptions. If you have any information regarding these incidents, please notify the Brockville Police Service at 613-342-0127 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Scams and Fraudulent Activity

Scams and Fraudulent Activity

Frauds and scams are becoming all too frequent. Scams over the phone or through text message and email are arguably the most common form. We have had multiple victims report similar type frauds.  

Investigation revealed that victims received calls from an unknown person, posing to be a family member. In these complaints, the suspect gave a story indicating that there was an emergency and they need money in amounts ranging from $4,000.00 – $5,000.00. Arrangements were then made for the money to be picked up and the victim would turn over the amount requested. Once this act is committed, it is learned that the story was a scam and their family members were not involved. This is yet another reminder for people to be vigilant as the ways in which frauds are carried out are ever changing.     

Bicycle Registration

The Brockville Police offers bicycle registration for free at the police station. The bicycle registration program allows the owner of a bicycle to have its serial number, make, model, colour and other relevant information put into a computer database. The owner receives a small license plate which is attached to the frame of the bicycle. A reflective “This bicycle is marked for Police I.D.” sticker is placed on the frame of the bicycle so that it can be easily identified by police.

Through this program numerous bikes are recovered each year by the Brockville Police Service and, in some cases, they are returned to owners and charges have been laid.
