Toronto police are seeking the public’s assistance in tracking down two men, wanted in connection with a series of commercial night-time break-and-enters in Scarborough.
According to police, a number of businesses in the area between Finch Avenue East and Sheppard Avenue East have reported break ins since the beginning of May.
Investigators say that a man broke into a grocery supply store on Sunday, June 5th at 12.50.a.m, and took a small amount of money from the cash register.
It’s alleged that the same man then went into another unit in the same plaza and smashed the glass of the door after he had tried, unsuccessfully to pry the door open.
How ever his entry was blocked by steel bars on the door, he then fled the scene.
He was wearing a blue hoodie, white bandana with dark patches covering his face, grey pants and gloves at the time of the incident.
Meanwhile, on June 7th at 4.12 a.m, another man gained entry to a business by smashing the front glass door with a rock, he targetted the cash area before fleeing.
He is described as a white male, aged 25 to 45, 5’9″ – 5’10” tall and with a thin build.
He was wearing a dark waist-length jacket, blue jeans, dark shoes and dark socks covering his hands, possibly covering face with a T-shirt.
Security camera images of the suspects have now been released and anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-4200 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).
