It’s not a typo…
York Regional Police have released surveillance camera video of a suspect wanted in connection with the theft of $1,500 worth of chewing gum from a pharmacy in Markham.
The incident happened back on December 17th at approximately 7:20 p.m. at a pharmacy near Highway 7 and Kennedy Road.
The suspect is seen walking to the candy aisle, opening a garbage bag, and filling it with chewing gum. He leaves the store, only to return moments later — with another garbage bag — which is once again filled with chewing gum.
No other items were taken from the store.
Police say it’s believed the man loaded both garbage bags into the taxi that was waiting for him and left.
The suspect is described by Police as:
- Male, brown
- 40 to 50 years
- 5’7”, medium-build
- Salt and pepper beard
- Wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and a blue cap
