Whyte Ave shop turns to social media to identify suspected thief


EDMONTON – A Whyte Avenue store is using social media to find a suspect who allegedly stole from staff.

The incident reportedly happened around noon Sunday at the “When Pigs Fly” shop, located at 104 Street and Whyte Avenue. The store’s surveillance video shows a woman rifling through the staff lockers at the back of the store; it’s said she made away with two wallets and a cell phone.

There were four employees on shift and when they noticed their belongings missing. Staff then posted the woman’s photo on Facebook.

“It’s been shared a lot of times, and we got some pretty good tips in too. So yeah we’re on a good way because of all the people that have helped us and shared this,” said staff member Mia Edmundsson.

If you have any information, you’re asked to call the store, or police.
