The RNC are looking to identify a woman allegedly involved in a recent shoplifting incident that escalated into a much more serious crime.
The incident occurred around 9:00 p.m. on Saturday November 26 at the Shopper’s Drug Mart on Topsail Road.
Police say the woman was initially suspected of shoplifting, but threatened staff when she was approached.
The woman told the loss prevention staff member that she had a sharp object which police are not identifying at this time.
In so doing, the alleged crime changed from a simple theft to a robbery.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the RNC at 729-8000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
