Offence Description:

On Sunday, August 11, 2019 at about 5:55 p.m a male suspect entered the Wink Eyecare store, located at 2-270 Hays Boulevard in the town of Oakville. He was greeted by staff, and he told them that he was shopping for a new pair of sunglasses because his Father sat on his old pair and broke them.

He was shown to the Gucci display section, and he began to browse around, trying on different pairs and inspecting the material used and also the price tags. At one point, he engaged the staff, asking her opinion about how certain pairs looked on him. The suspect used his cellphone to make a call, but it is not believed he spoke to anyone. The staff member who was assisting him left the selling floor, leaving the other staff member busy at the cash register area. The suspect took this opportunity to select three pairs of sunglasses and, one by one, conceal them up his sleeve.

He quickly exited the store without paying for the concealed merchandise, and was last seen fleeing on a silver colored bicycle. He is described as white, 20-23 years, 5'9", 140 pounds, slim build, brown hair in a bun, hair growth along jaw line, gray long sleeved top, beige cargo pants, Blundstone boots.
