Police requesting assistance to identify overnight thieves
A woman had her cash and credit card stolen from her vehicle in the Woodhaven subdivision in Kingston’s west end in the early morning hours of Sunday, Aug. 16, 2020. Kingston Police are requesting assistance from the public to identify three potential suspects from security footage.
The victim became aware of the thefts due to numerous text alerts from her credit card company indicating that her credit card had been used repeatedly between the hours of 4:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. on this same date, police say.
Police learned after further investigation that one of the victim’s neighbours had security video which, when viewed, showed three different suspects in the area around the time that the theft would have occurred. Police observed on the security video that the three female suspects appeared to be going from home to home checking car door handles to see if the vehicles parked in the driveways were locked.
The three female suspects are described as Caucasian with slim to medium builds. The three suspects all appear to be wearing white or light coloured running/canvass shoes.
Anyone with information in regards to the identity of these female suspects, is asked to please contact Detective Graham at 613-549-4660 ext. 6311 or via email at [email protected].
Tips can also be made anonymously by calling the Kingston Police general number (613-549-4660 ext. 0) and requesting to remain anonymous.
Police are reminding members of the public to always lock their vehicles when left unattended. Leaving your vehicle unlocked and/or with valuables in plain view offers would-be criminals an easy opportunity to victimize vehicle owners.
