The public’s assistance is required in identifying two men connected to two separate thefts at Burlington liquor stores.

In one alleged crime, a male walked into the LCBO store located at 501 Appleby Line around 3:48 p.m. on May 3, 2024 and placed several items from a store display into a shopping basket.

“He had begun walking toward the exit, when he was advised that he was required to pay for the products he continued to exit making no attempt to pay,” said Halton Regional Police.

The man (pictured above) would walk out and get into a grey SUV. No make, model or license plate was described.

The white man is described as being five-foot-five tall with a small build and is believed to be between 40 to 50 years of age. He had short hair with a beard and was wearing black and white shoes with a black had that had “Region of Peel” written on it.

He was also sporting a black sweater and a dark green jacket.

Police believe the same man is responsible for other thefts in neighbouring cities and towns.

In another alleged liquor store theft on April 12, 2024, a man walked into a LCBO located at 1235 Plains Road and took multiple items and hid them in his coat.

He would then proceed past the cash register area and out the store without paying for the items.

The man (pictured below) is described as a white male, believed to be between 50 to 60 years of age. He has short grey hair with a grey goatee and grey stubble.

The man was wearing blue jeans with a dark jacket, a Toronto Blue Jays cap, and light blue running shoes.

Anyone with information on either of these incidents is asked to call Halton police at 905-825-4747. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or through their website at
