Kingston Police seeking assistance to identify downtown theft suspect
Kingston Police have released a photo and video footage of a suspect who stole property from a building in the 300 block of Princess Street in downtown Kingston.
At approximately 2 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 18, 2022, the suspect was captured on security video inside the building where they removed a brown box from inside the building. According to a release from Kingston Police, the box was later revealed to be property belonging to the building.
The suspect, who police describe as possibly a male, appears to be Caucasian and was wearing a bright blue winter jacket with a dark hood pulled up over a baseball cap. The suspect was also wearing light grey pants, dark coloured footwear, and a medical mask which covered their mouth and nose, therefore obscuring their face, according to the release.
“It is evident in the video that the suspect has a significant ‘stutter step’ and has great difficulty bending their right leg at the knee joint with any consistency compared to the left leg,” Kingston Police said in the release.
Anyone with information in regards to the identity of this suspect is asked to please contact Detective Jason Lachapelle at 613-549-4660 ext. 6294 or via email at [email protected].
