Theft

On February 13th, LaSalle Police attended Shoppers Drug Mart on Malden Road for a report of theft which occurred approximately an hour and a half prior. An employee noticed a female exiting the store with a large black bag which triggered the store’s alarm. The female did not turn back or seem surprised when the alarm sounded and promptly left the store in a waiting vehicle. The store manager reviewed the video surveillance and observed the same female putting a large amount of fragrances in her bag while a male distracted the employees. LaSalle Police were contacted and began an investigation into the matter. It was determined that the two parties left the store with approximately $850 worth of stolen goods. Photos of the suspects were released on social media, resulting in many tips leading to their identity. Both face charges relating to the theft.
