Investigators arriving to the store were told by employees that the suspect walked into the store and immediately went to the display case and broke it in half. 

He took off running with the cosmetic lenses, which are non-medical accessories that are used to change the colour of someone’s eyes. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Nanaimo RCMP on their non-emergency line at 250-754-2345 and quote file # 2019-49414.
