Halton Regional Police Service detectives have released images from security footage showing who they believe to be responsible for a break in at the theatre as well as a local grocery store in recent days.
The three suspects pried open sliding doors of the Sobeys at 2441 Lakeshore Road West to gain access to an ATM at approximately 5:30 am on Friday, January 18. A chain was attached to the ATM as well as a truck driven by the suspects; when the truck accelerated, the machine was hauled through the doors, then loaded into the vehicle.
Police believe these same suspects used the same technique to steal the ATM at Film.Ca Cinemas at approximately 3:30 am on January 24.
The suspect descriptions are:
Suspect 1: Male, wearing a black balaclava, a blue hoodie, brown pants, brown boots, and white gloves.
Suspect 2: Male, wearing a black balaclava, a blue plaid jacket, black pants, black shoes with white soles, and blue gloves.
Suspect 3: Male, wearing a black balaclava, a dark jacket over a bright orange hoodie, black pants, tan work boots, and black gloves.
The vehicle used is described as a 2004 to 2007 Ford F250, 4-door crew cab, two-tone – green with tan trim, winter rims, no tonneau cover.
The Halton Regional Police Service will not be disclosing the value of these ATMs or their contents, as the investigation is ongoing at this time. Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Constable Ross Amore at the Oakville Criminal Investigations Bureau at 905-825-4747 ext. 2246, or anonymously through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
No staff members were harmed during these thefts.
The entire cast at Film.Ca Cinemas would like to thank the community for the outpouring of support we’ve received at the theatre as well as on social media as we make repairs and continue welcoming families and friends to the movies.
