According to a Nanaimo RCMP press release, on Friday, March 15, an individual, whose image was picked up on store security video, allegedly stole approximately $350-$400 of meat from Thrifty Foods on Turner Road and later the same day stole a steam press valued at $100 from London Drugs located in Port Place Shopping Centre.

In CCTV images provided from the store locations, investigators noted the suspect was wearing the same clothing in both incidents.

The suspect is 5-foot-9 with a medium build, brown hair and a beard and was wearing dark sunglasses, a dark baseball cap and a sweatshirt with ‘Hustle Wear’ on the front and ‘Self Employed’ on the back.
