Leamington OPP are looking for the public’s help to identify two men seen stealing expensive welding equipment from a hardware store.

On the December 18th, just after 8pm, two unknown male suspects entered the TSC Store in Leamington. The two male suspects attended the welding section of the store.

The first male suspect picked up a Plasma cutter power welder valued at $899.99 and attended the cashier’s desk. When the cashier was not looking, the suspect walked past the cashier, out the front doors without making an effort to pay.

The second suspect also attempted to leave the store without paying for a second welder but was confronted by the cashier and the property was returned. The second suspect left on foot.

The first suspect is described as being a white male, wearing blue jeans with a black shirt with a white emblem on the shirt on the front. He had black hair, was wearing a tan hat covering his head, a brown coat with black shoes. He was wearing a safety vest on the outside of his coat.

The second white male suspect is described as being approximately 20 years old, six foot tall, with brown eyes, a slender build and a long face. He appeared to have acne on the right side of his face with possibly a birthmark. He was wearing light tan pants, a plaid shirt coat, a safety vest and a flat brimmed grey cap with a dark grey brim.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the person in the photo.

If you have any information, you are asked to contact the Leamington OPP Street Crimes Unit at 519-326-2455.
