It wasn’t a Cinderella story and it wasn’t a slipper but North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP are looking to reunite the an Adidas sandal with its owner — and then perhaps put him or her in jail.
Two suspects left the shoe behind after an incident at the Cowichan Commons Walmart Sept. 10 that saw one of them threaten to shoot a security guard before making off with two power drills, among other items.
The duo, a male and female in their twenties, fled in a silver four door sedan with the Alberta licence plate BRH2861. Police say the plates do not match the car.
Only the shoe was left behind.
“The male yelled at the loss prevention officer that he would shoot him if he continued to follow them,” said a press release issued by North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Krista Hobday.
The two suspects are both described as Caucasian.
The female has long blonde hair with dark roots. She was wearing a white tank top and short shorts at the time of the theft.
Her partner had short brown hair and had sunglasses on top of his head. He sported a dark t-shirt with a Hurley logo on the chest.
Those with information about this or any other crime are encouraged to contact the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment at 250-748-5522 or Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
Those providing information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property or the seizure of illicit drugs could be eligible for a cash award.
