Nanaimo RCMP looking to identify scissor-stealing suspects


Nanaimo residents are being asked to help identify two masked suspects who broke into a hair salon last Tuesday.

The Cosmo Prof salon on Bowen Road had its front door smashed in at around 6 a.m. on Tuesday April 25th, according to police.

Several high-end hair clippers and shears were taken.

Although both suspects were wearing masks, RCMP hope to identify them from the clothing they were wearing.

Mounties patrolled the area for any suspects but didn’t find anyone they believed to be in connection to the incident.

After the incident, the business owner confirmed that several expensive hair clippers and shears were taken. The following day, investigators were given a few still photos captured from video surveillance.

“While both suspects were wearing masks, police are confident that they may be identified from the clothing that was worn,” said R/Cst Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP.

“It should be noted that at least one of the suspects appears be a woman.”

Anyone with information on the incident or if you can identify the suspects, call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345.
