Kingston Police have released the above photos and are looking for public assistance in identifying the two suspects pictured, who were involved in a break and enter earlier this month.
According to police, the incident occurred in the early morning hours of Saturday, Apr. 10, 2021, when two male suspects went to a business located near the intersection of Days and Bath Roads in the city’s west end. Both suspects were captured on security video “pacing around the business,” Kingston Police said in a press release on Thursday, Apr. 22, 2021. One of the suspects was carrying what appeared to be a battering ram, police said.
While at the business, the suspects went to the front of the store and one of them proceeded to use the battering ram to smash out one of the front windows. With the window broken, the suspect reached into the store and, “after several minutes of struggling,” managed to free a bicycle from a rack and pull it out through the broken window. Both suspects then fled the scene with the stolen bike.
Police responded to the scene and found significant damages to the front window of the business. According to police, the suspects made off with a black/charcoal coloured Fluid FS3 L29 mountain bike.
The first suspect is described as having a slim to medium build, and was wearing dark shoes, light coloured pants, and a dark hoodie with a fleur-de-lis across the chest and the word “quebec” spelled out underneath it. The suspect was also wearing a dark coloured hat and a dark mask covering his face at the time of the break and enter.
The second suspect is described as having a slim to medium build, and was wearing white running shoes and a grey or light coloured zip-up hoodie with the word “CANADA” spelled out across the chest in white. He was also wearing a gas mask style face covering at the time, which appeared to have an air filter in front of the mouth area, police said.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident or the identities of either suspect is asked to contact Detective Wilby at 613-549-4660 ext. 6217, or via email at [email protected].
