Brantford Police ServiceBrantford pickpocket suspects target elderly persons

The Brantford Police Service continue to investigate a number of personal thefts and are seeking information from the public in an effort to identify the persons responsible.

Between April 11, 2024, and April 15, 2024, four separate calls for service were received to report elderly victims had their wallets stolen while shopping at grocery stores in Brantford.

Investigation determined that two male suspects appear to be working together, specifically targeting elderly persons who were shopping alone. One suspect would act as a distraction while the other would physically steal the wallet from the victim. 

During each incident, the suspects were believed to arrive to the grocery stores on foot, and they were successful at each location with obtaining credit cards and identifying documents.

Investigators are seeking information from the public in order to identify the suspects shown in the photos below.

Suspect #1 is described as a white male, with a slim build, short/buzzed hair, and short scruffy facial hair. The suspect was wearing white sneakers, faded and ripped blue jeans, a white shirt, vintage green army style jacket and a light, bright baseball hat. 

Suspect #2 is described as a white male, with a muscular build and a scruffy short grey beard. The male was wearing white running shoes, tight blue jeans with ripped knees, a light grey hoodie, and a black beret hat with a beak at the front.
