Kingston Police have released the above photos and are asking for public assistance to identify two female suspects involved in a theft.
According to Kingston Police, the theft occurred just after 4:40 p.m., when the two females in question entered a laundromat in the downtown core. The two suspects then approached a folding table, where the victim was sitting at the opposite end. The victim’s laundry basket obscured her view of what the suspects were doing at the other end of the table, police said in a press release on Thursday, Feb. 10, 2022.
“One of the suspects then proceeded to reach into the pocket of a jacket belonging to the victim that was laying on the table, apparently attempting to determine if there were any contents inside. The female suspect who had initially reached into the jacket pocket was then captured on security video speaking with the second suspect,” Kingston Police said.
While both suspects then walked away from the table briefly, the second suspect returned shortly thereafter and removed the victim’s wallet from the jacket, police relayed. Both suspects then left the scene and the business.
The victim’s credit cards, which were in the wallet that was stolen, were then used at multiple locations throughout Kingston.
The first suspect is described as a Caucasian female with a medium build, and long, black hair. At the time of the theft, she was wearing a black face mask, black shirt, blue jeans, tall black boots, and a black toque with an emblem on the front of it.
The second suspect is described as a Caucasian female with a medium-to-heavy build. At the time of the incident, she was wearing a black face mask, a maroon-coloured Florida State University hoodie with “FSU” on the front of it, a red jacket with tan fur trim, and light brown boots. The second suspect was also wearing glasses.
Anyone with information regarding the incident or the identity of either or both of the suspects is asked to contact Constable Andrew Kettle at 613-549-4660 ext. 6390, or via email at [email protected].
