The Ottawa Police Service would like to warn the public about a recent series of distraction thefts that have occurred in Ottawa and other cities across Ontario, where two suspects are targeting elderly women.
The two suspects usually follow a victim into a store, observe and obtain their PIN during a purchase and then follow her out to store to her vehicle. One of the suspects, usually a man, will distract the elderly woman by pointing to a possible issue with their vehicle, like a flat tire at the rear. While this is happening another suspect will steal the woman’s purse/wallet. Then within minutes, they attend a nearby ATM/ABM and empty the victim’s bank account.
The same suspects are believed to have done the similar thefts in Kingston, Toronto, Halton, Barrie, York and Waterloo.
The two male suspects are described as Latin American, approximately 20-35 years old, and both approximately 5’10” (178 cm). They were wearing “puffy lightweight windbreaker type” jackets with the collars straight up, black baseball hats — one of the two also wearing a black bandana under the cap. (see pictures)
Anyone with information about this type of distraction thefts can contact the Ottawa Police at 613-236-1222, ext 7300. Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS)
I’m passing on an email sent to the HMB Watch last evening. This incident was also reported to the police.
A number of houses and vehicles on Nutgrove and Grand Canal were egged during the evening of April 25th. The window to my garage door was clearly hit by an egg and a vehicle down the street was hit at least once if not more than once with eggs. There were bits of egg on Nutgrove Ave as well as down Grand Canal as evidence that this had happened.
This crime of vandalism was most likely committed by bored teenagers from the area. Please if you’re missing eggs from your refrigerator have a chat with your teen(s) and remind them that their fun isn’t funny.
If you have any information regarding this egging please contact the police with the information. 613-236-1222, ext. 7300
