Sudbury Rainbow Crime Stoppers and the Greater Sudbury Police Service are seeking the public's assistance in identifying a pair of suspects related to a theft and fraud.

On June 18, an older adult was shopping in the area of New Sudbury and had some difficulty with the PIN number at a cash register. 

Upon leaving the store, the older adult felt that they were being followed. A couple neared the victim’s vehicle and were uncomfortably close, between the cars.

Later in the day, it was discovered that the victim’s wallet had been stolen. Upon contacting the bank, it was revealed that the victim’s credit card had been fraudulently used and an undisclosed amount of money was stolen.

The suspect couple are described as between 30 to 40 years of age. The male has dark hair and a goatee. The female has light-coloured, shoulder length or longer hair.

"These culprits will likely target more older adults by trying to capture their PIN number by looking over the shoulder of the victim," said Crime Stoppers in news release.

If you know who committed this crime or any other crime, call Crime Stoppers at 705-222-TIPS (8477) or 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or submit a tip online at www.sudburycrimestoppers.com.

If your information leads to an arrest you could be eligible to earn up to $2,000 in cash. You will remain anonymous and will not have to testify in court.
