The first suspect is described as a white male, between 45 and 48 years old, five feet and 10 inches tall with a medium build and has a goatee. He was last seen wearing a black Toronto Blue Jays shirt, black shirt, black Toronto Blue Jays baseball hat, sunglasses and construction boots.

Police say this suspect also has tattoos on his forearms, back and a teardrop tattoo on his face.
