Police Seek Suspects Who Stole Memory Card with Sentimental Images

On November 14, 2020 just before 4:00 pm, two suspects entered Burlington Camera located at 489 Guelph Line in Burlington.  The suspects stole a camera and camera-related items and left the store without paying.  One of the stolen items included a memory card belonging to a store employee.  The memory card contained photographs of the employee's ​​15 month old grandson who is currently undergoing treatment for brain cancer.

The Halton Regional Police Service is seeking the public's assistance in identifying the two suspects, in hopes of returning the memory card to its rightful owner. The images on the card are the only copies and are of great sentimental significance to the owner.
