Suspect entering Woodgrove Centre  Suspect vehicle

The Nanaimo RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the individual shown in the attached photo. On June 27, 2022, this person allegedly stole a 26 inch 14 carat gold necklace valued at approximately $5500 from People’s Jewellers, located in the Woodgrove Centre. Video surveillance has recently been obtained of the suspect and the vehicle that he is associated to.

Employees told investigators that the suspect walked into their business shortly before 1:30 PM on June 27th. After looking at several items, the suspect tried on a necklace and moments later, ran out of the store with it around his neck. The suspect is a Caucasian man, approximately 5 ft. 5 inches tall, slim build with dark greasy hair. He was wearing a dark medical mask, K2 stone hat, a pink sweater and grey shorts.

Video surveillance showed the suspect entering the Mall and shortly after the theft, getting into the passenger side of a blue (possibly) Kia motor vehicle. If anyone has information on this incident, please call the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345.
