New Westminster – The New Westminster Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance to identify a theft suspect. An unknown man entered into a local business in the 600 block of 6th Street on January 28th 2016 and stole $18,000 worth of iPads.
At approximately 3:30pm, the suspect entered the warehouse portion of the store and used bolt cutters to break into a storage case. He loaded 54 iPads into a bag and then fled the warehouse. Once outside of the warehouse, he got into a blue Chrysler 300 and drove away.
The suspect is described as a tall Caucasian male, who was wearing a blue reflective jacket, black pants, and white gloves.
“We are hoping that someone will recognize the suspect in the photograph,” stated Media Relations Officer Acting Sergeant Jeff Scott. “This was a large number of iPads that were stolen, and we are asking if anyone does recognize the suspect to please call us.”
Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to call Constable Vince Stewart at 604-525-5411 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
