Police look to identify suspects in downtown Kingston break-in

Kingston Police have released the above stills taken from security camera footage and are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the people pictured, who are suspects involved in a break-and-enter case.

According to police, three suspects were involved in the incident, which occurred “during the early morning hours of Monday, Jan. 22, 2024,” when an office building in downtown Kingston was broken into “by unknown persons.” Specifically, police said the building in question is in the 800 block of Princess Street, which is roughly the stretch of Princess Street from the Kingston Medical Arts Building (just above MacDonnell Street) to the intersection of Bath Road with Princess and Concession Streets (the “old traffic circle”).

The media release issued by Kingston Police on Tuesday, Feb. 27, 2024, addressing this incident did not specify how the suspects broke into the office building. However, once inside the building, the suspects were “able to gain access to multiple floors within the building and began attempting to enter private offices,” police said.

Police did not disclose if the suspects took anything from the building.

Police described the first suspect as a Caucasian female with blond hair. At the time of the incident, she was wearing a black winter jacket, and black shoes with laces and thick, white soles. She was also carrying a green shoulder bag with orange lettering, police said.

The second suspect is a Caucasian male, according to Kingston Police. At the time of the incident, he was wearing a black baseball cap, a hooded sweatshirt, a camouflage jacket, and large, beige mittens with white trim, according to police.

The third suspect was described by police as being a Caucasian male with brown facial hair. At the time of the incident, police said, this suspect was wearing a dark-coloured winter jacket and a multi-coloured scarf around his neck.

Kingstonist has inquired with Kingston Police as to how the suspects gained entry to the office building, as well as if anything was taken during the incident. This article will be updated if/when more information becomes available.

Anyone with information on this incident or the identity of any (or all) of the three suspects is asked to contact Constable Jason Lachapelle via email at [email protected].
