Durham police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying two people they say have been shoplifting at Oshawa Centre.
At approximately 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27 at the Oshawa Centre, a male and a female entered the Churchill’s Crossing store at the mall together. Police say while the male distracted an employee at the rear of the store, the female took a hooded sweater valued at $150 and hid it in her shoulder bag.
About half an hour later, the same couple was at the T-Booth Wireless store asking about cell phones. Police say while the female talked with the sales clerk, the male reached over the counter and stole four cellphones, valued at a total of $3,800.
The male suspect is described as black with a skinny to medium build. He was last seen with long dreadlocks, wearing a black hat, blue jeans and a light grey sweater.
The female suspect is described as black and was last seen with long, curly brown and blonde hair and wearing a red puffy coat.
Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call Det. Const. Grigoriou at 1-888-579-1520, ext. 2737.
