Thieves run with scissors

Two people lifted more than $6,000 worth of barber/stylist scissors and hair extensions from a beauty supply store

Two people lifted more than $6,000 worth of barber/stylist scissors and hair extensions from a beauty supply store display case during store hours on Monday.

A man and a woman entered Nova Beauty Supplies in the 600 block of Boleskine Rd., entered a locked display case, filled a bag with the items before leaving the store. The theft did not go detected until video surveillance was later reviewed.

The female culprit appears to have sustained a significant cut to her left hand and may have required medical attention, or sought first aid nearby. Forensics officers have seized DNA samples to assist in identifying the culprits.

The male suspect is caucasian, with a slim build and dark, collar-length hair. He was wearing blue jeans, a dark shirt and a black and grey winter coat.

The female suspect is also caucasian with a medium build and dark, medium length hair. She was wearing dark pants, a dark shirt and a white zip up hoodie.

Any persons with information are asked to contact the Saanich Police at 250-475-4321 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
