Police looking for suspect after $1,800 in tools stolen from Canadian Tire

KAWARTHA LAKES- Kawartha Lakes Police are investigating after  $1800 in tools was allegedly stolen from the Canadian Tire store in Lindsay.

In February 15th, a male suspect allegedly attempted to leave the store with $1,800 worth of chainsaws and expensive tools. The suspect attempted to distract staff and convince them that the articles had been paid for according to police.

Staff members say they followed the suspect and tried to intervene but the suspect fled the store in a dark grey or silver four door sedan. Some of the stolen items were recovered in the parking lot, but the suspect left with a 60cc 24” Husqvarna chainsaw and a 55cc 20” Husqvarna chainsaw. A photo of the suspect has been provided, if you have any information you are asked to call police.

Kawartha Lakes Police say they were kept busy responding to several other shoplifting calls this week.

In one incident, a male suspect allegedly went to a Lindsay grocery store on two different occasions on February 14th. Each time, the suspect is reported to have picked up beer from the store and left without paying. On February 15th, the same male returned to the store and again attempted to leave without paying for beer he had selected. He was detained by staff at the store and police were called. 21-year-old Jeremy Donnelly of Lindsay is charged with three counts of Theft Under $5,000 and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime. He is also charged with 4 counts of breaching the conditions of two different probation orders.

In a second incident, a male suspect was caught by staff at a Lindsay dollar store after he was allegedly observed trying to leave the store with unpaid merchandise on February 15th. 32-year-old Brandon Saunders of Lindsay is charged with Theft Under $5,000 and Possession of Property Obtained by Crime.
