Kingston Police detectives are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying one of two women involved in a theft from a west-end store back in July.

At approximately 12:00 p.m. on July 29 two women entered Spencer Gifts located in the Cataraqui Mall and stole clothing, a new wallet and adult merchandise, valued between $300 and $400.

On August 10 a uniform patrol officer came across a woman in Kingston fitting the description of one of the suspects from the theft, contacted the detective and compared her likeness to a video surveillance image. Positively identifying her the officer formed reasonable grounds to arrest and charge the 33-year-old Kingston woman with theft and breach of probation, as she had been convicted of the same offence in June of 2016.

The woman was not cooperative with police and the identity of the second female is still being sought. The outstanding suspect is described as Caucasian, 25 to 35 years of age, heavy build, medium height, short blonde hair and has a distinctive skull with roses tattoo on her right shoulder. She is wearing a black shirt and light-coloured shorts, while carrying a reusable shopping bag and a pink plastic bag. There is information the woman may be from or have an association to the Belleville or Quinte areas.

Anyone with information in relation to the investigation, the accused’s actions, or the location of the outstanding stolen property is please asked to contact Detective Cameron Gough at 613-549-4660 ext. 6273 or via email at [email protected]
