Victoria Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who targeted the cashbox at a downtown nail salon during a break-in that was captured on video.
The incident occurred just before 2:45 a.m. in the 700-block of Fort Street on March 11th for a report of a break and enter.
The owner of the salon had arrived at work around 10 a.m. to find the front door of the business damaged and the cashbox missing.
“Having installed high-quality, well-placed surveillance video, the proprietor was able to capture the break and enter and theft,” said VicPD in a media release.
Just before 2:45 a.m., the suspect can be seen entering the business through the broken front door. The suspect went directly for the cashbox and immediately exited the business through the same door.
The suspect was wearing a red and white “trucker” style hat, black athletic-style pants with white sections at the knees, black and white skate shoes, a grey hiking-style backpack with turquoise shoulder straps and zippers, a dark grey hoodie, and a royal blue raincoat which was tucked into the backpack.
Police said the cashbox was located a short distance away.
