“The staff were too clever for his scheme and questioned him about it,” he said.
The man then gave up on trying to return the folio and left the store without paying for it – but not before being caught on the security camera.
Police are now trying to identify the man and ask anyone who recognizes him to call the Saanich Police Department at 250-475-4321. Those who wish to report anonymously can call Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
