VicPD investigators are asking for your help in identifying two men of interest after a woman’s Fernwood residence was broken into, her car stolen and her credit card used for fraudulent purchases.
Victoria police said in a news release that an unknown person entered the victim’s home through an unlocked front door on November 25th around 3:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. Several items were stolen from the home including a wallet and car keys.
The suspects then took off in the victim’s car. The vehicle has since been recovered.
Two people of interest were seen on video surveillance footage using a credit card from the stolen wallet at a gas station on Oak Bay Avenue the next day. They also use the card at one other location.
The first suspect is described as a white male with a heavy build, approximately 55 years old. He was wearing a dark green overcoat, dark brown fur hat with earflaps, sunglasses and had a dark brown moustache.
Police describe the second suspect as a tall, slim white male with long brown hair held in a ponytail, a medium-length bear. He was wearing a multicoloured thick bomber-style coat and a greenish grey hat with a pattern, similar to camouflage on it.
