A female suspect in the theft of more than $6,000 in beauty supplies might have suffered a serious cut while committing the crime, Saanich police say.
The theft occurred Monday at Nova Beauty Supplies on Boleskine Road, near Harriet Road, during store hours. A man and woman bypassed a lock on a display case and put items into a bag.
Their actions were observed later on video. The woman appears to have cut her left hand badly enough that she may have needed medical attention.
The man is described as slim with dark, collar-length hair. He was wearing blue jeans, a dark shirt and a black and grey winter coat. The woman has a medium build and medium-length hair and was wearing dark pants, a dark shirt and a white zip-up hoodie.
Saanich police ask anyone with information to call them at 250-475-4321 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
