Nanaimo police believe suspects in alleged theft might be from elsewhere on Vancouver Island

Nanaimo RCMP are searching for four suspects in an alleged theft of $900 of merchandise from the Real Canadian Superstore.

According to police, the theft is alleged to have occurred on Tuesday. Police were called to the north Nanaimo location at about 5 p.m., where store employees reported four suspects – three females and one male – managed to leave the business without paying for a shopping cart of meat products and electronics.

When confronted by a loss prevention officers, the cart was abandoned and the four suspects left the area in a small grey car.

“The photos have been distributed within the Nanaimo RCMP detachment and the four suspects were not identified. For this reason, we believe they are from another jurisdiction somewhere on the Island,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman.

If you have information on the identity of any of these four suspects, please call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345. If you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers at www.nanaimocrimestoppers.com, text 274637 with keyword Nanaimo, or call 1-800-222-8477.
