File # 2021-7643

 

On April 11, 2021, the Save on Foods on McCallum Road, Langford, BC, was the most recent known target of a pair who has been scamming their way across Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

The two women were first spotted in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in March of this year. The suspects use a distraction-based technique to allow them to pocket cash and depart before was theft is discovered. In some instances, they were observed leaving in a dark coloured minivan.

Since the first incident on March 19, 2021, officials at Save on Foods estimate the women have managed to pocket $7,386.00 in cash from various stores across the three provinces.

Someone knows who these women are, says Cst Meighan Massey, of the West Shore RCMP. They are traveling across Canada, in the middle of a pandemic, victimizing businesses as they go. We are asking for anyone with information regarding these crimes to please contact police.

If you or anyone you know has information regarding the identity of these women, please contact the West Shore RCMP at (250)474-2264 or if you wish to remain anonymous, contact CRIME STOPPERS at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
