A spate of theft from Trail Canadian Tire has police asking for tips from the public

A coordinated theft of more than $600 worth of merchandise from the Trail Canadian Tire store has police asking for tips from the public to help identify a pair of suspects.

The Trail detachment received a report the afternoon of May 16 that a male and female had worked as a team to steal items from the retailer – located in the 8200-block of Highway 3B – before fleeing through an exit-only doorway to a waiting Dodge pick up truck.

Police have already identified a Trail man, 51, as the driver of the vehicle, but the other two remain at-large.

The second man is described as Caucasian, seen wearing a black and white baseball hat, blue shirt, jeans and a pair of black shoes.

The woman is described as Caucasian, with dark hair and was seen wearing a grey baseball hat and a black and flower print dress.

The Trail RCMP have also confirmed the truck in question – a green 1995 Dodge Dakota – is suspected to be associated to recent lumber thefts in the area.
