Help Us Catch Them: Identify Wallet Theft Suspects
Hamilton Police are seeking the public's assistance in identifying four suspects involved in a targeted wallet theft incident that occurred recently. The incident involved the coordinated efforts of the suspects to distract a 64-year-old victim, ultimately resulting in the theft of her wallet.
The four suspects worked seamlessly as a team to carry out the crime. One individual served as a lookout, while another strategically blocked the victim's path as she exited the store. After closely following the victim within the store, the remaining two suspects approached her from behind and skillfully lifted her wallet from her purse. Subsequently, the suspects used the victim's debit and credit cards at nearby establishments.
These suspects are known to travel extensively throughout the province and occasionally across the country, targeting older individuals who are shopping alone. This criminal pattern suggests that the incident in question is likely not an isolated occurrence.

2. Suspect #2 – Male with blue vest, black hat
3. Suspect #3 – Male with checkered shirt, dark shadow beard
4. Suspect #4 – Male with blue jean jacket, black baseball hat
