Halton Police Investigating Apple Store Theft in Burlington
He’s accused of walking into an Apple store in Burlington and stealing a top of the line iPhone, and Halton police are asking the public to help identify him.
“I believe it probably is a one-off,” said Const. Naresh Dabas from the district response unit which is focusing on retail crime as Halton police are cracking down on shoplifting across the region.
The incident took place on Dec. 2 at Mapleview Mall at 1:34 p.m.
“He entered the store at that time and he selected an iPhone,” said Dabas.
The suspect left the store at 1:41 p.m. with “the product concealed in his jacket,” said Dabas, adding he made no attempt to pay for the cell phone.
He made off with a silver iPhone 7 with 128 GB.
The iPhone is valued at $869.
The suspect - who acted alone - is white, standing 5-foot-11 to 6-foot-1, and looks about 25-years-old.
He was wearing a black Canada Goose coat, v-neck shirt, a black hat, and dark pants.
