The Ottawa Police Service Central Criminal Investigations unit and Crime Stoppers are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a woman responsible for theft of shopping bags, purses and other personal belongings.
In January 2018 several thefts were committed in a centrally located mall. An unidentified woman is alleged to have taken shopping bags, purses or packsacks while their owner was distracted or had left their belongings unattended for a few minutes. The credit cards were then used to make fraudulent purchases.
