File # 2023-13600

Suspect # 1 dark Adidas hoodie, face mask  Suspect # 2 red backpack, multi-colored hat, blue mask

The Nanaimo RCMP is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the two masked suspects shown in the attached photos. It is alleged that just before 6 AM on Tuesday April 25, 2023, these individuals broke into Cosmo Prof, a hair salon, located at 1925 Bowen Road.

Police responded to a report of a glass break alarm and upon arrival, found the front door to the business smashed out. Patrols of the area proved negative for any suspects. The owner of the business later verified that a number of high end hair clippers and shears were stolen. The next day several still photos taken from video surveillance were provided to investigators.

While both suspects were wearing masks, police are confident that they may be identified from the clothing that was worn. It should be noted that at least one of the suspects appears be a woman, said R/Cst Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP.

If anyone has information on this incident, please contact the Nanaimo RCMP non-emergency line at 250-754-2345.
