Quick Change Theft

August 17, 2018

North Bay Police are currently investigating three quick change thefts that have occurred at separate business locations in North Bay. We are looking to identify the female captured on CCTV image.

Three businesses in North Bay this week are reporting being victims to a theft done by using a sleight of hand. The female suspect, whose age appears to be in her mid-twenties, asks a clerk to have several one hundred dollar bills changed to smaller bills. After taking the change in twenties she indicates she has changed her mind but does a sleight of hand and only returns a portion of the money.

The three businesses are reporting losses of $300, $180, and $800.

Anyone with information that may assist police with this investigation is asked to call the North Bay Police Service at 705-497-5555 and select option 9 to speak to a police officer.
