London police say a theft suspect was identified thanks to their website’s Caught on Camera page.
On Monday April 18 a man entered the Superstore located at 825 Oxford Street East. At 2:45 p.m., the man selected a DVD Player and Cellphone charger, placing them in his bag.
Police say the male walked out of the store and made no attempt to pay for the items. When the security guard tried to stop him, the man apparently fled on a bicycle with the stolen items in his bag.
The suspect photo and description were placed on the Caught on Camera page and he was identified as a result.
The 32-year-old London man was charged with theft under $5000.
