Kingston Police have released the above images and are asking the public for assistance to identify this individual, who has committed multiple thefts at the same location.
At approximately 10:30 a.m. on July 13, 2021, the male suspect entered a liquor store in midtown Kingston. Security video inside the store captured him proceeding to select a bottle of vodka and then concealing it in the waistband of his shorts, according to a release from Kingston Police, dated Monday, Jul. 19, 2021. He then selected a second bottle of vodka and proceeded to the cash register area and attempted to pay for the one bottle with a bank card that was subsequently declined. Police said he then left the store without making any attempt to pay for the bottle of vodka that he had just concealed in his shorts.
A review of security footage revealed that this male had committed multiple thefts of this nature at the same location beginning on July 9, 2021, each time using a debit card that ultimately was declined, according to the release.
The suspect is a Caucasian male, with a stocky build. He was wearing a light blue pinstriped button-up short sleeve shirt and blue shorts. He was also wearing a dark-coloured ball cap with sunglasses placed on the brim.
Anyone with information in regards to the identity of this male suspect is asked to please contact Constable Kelsey Collins at 613-549-4660 ext. 6428 or via email at [email protected].
