According to police, the suspect entered the grocery store near the intersection of Railway and Montreal Streets on Friday, Apr. 26, 2024. Police did not specify what time of day this occurred at.

“The male suspect purchased two cans of an unspecified beverage.

    • Hi John,
      Police did not specify which store it was, and we cannot assume these things.
      We have asked Kingston Police to confirm which store this occurred at, and this article will be updated if we’re able to obtain that information.
      Hope that helps! :)

      • Understood. My question should have been aimed, then, at Kington Police. Logically it was Quattrocchi’s. I’m curious to know why the store wasn’t named, unless Quattrocchi’s specifically asked not to be named.
