Distractions continue to be a highly used method of committing thefts. Whether a victim is approached in a parking lot and distracted while being asked for assistance; or a store employee is distracted by a suspect asking for assistance and a second suspect conceals merchandise. Which is what took place on March 2, 2023 at about 6:00PM, at Shoppers Drug Mart on Parkedale Ave. Two female suspects entered into the store. One female distracted the employee by looking for assistance with products and a second female, appearing to be unrelated, concealed a large quantity of fragrances. It was also learned that the same two females had committed the same act at the Shoppers Drug Mart on King St. W. Approximately $5,200.00 worth of fragrances were stolen. The two female suspects are not believed to be local and the investigation is still ongoing. We encourage everyone, whether you are a clerk in a store or you are walking to your car at the grocery store, please be aware of these distraction techniques. Protect your valuables. If it appears you are being aware and cautious with these suspects, that alone will help deter these crimes from occurring.
