Saanich police are calling for the public’s help identifying a suspect after someone was caught on camera stuffing shoes down their pants.
At about 2:30 p.m. on March 3, the person was caught on camera leaving Famous Footwear without paying for a pair of black and white Nikes.

Since they were Nike shoes, you thought to yourself ‘Just Do It, Just Steal Them’, but your mind should have said ‘Just Pay For Them’,” says the Crime Stoppers Facebook post.
