$1M in equipment reported stolen from Edmonton aesthetics business

WATCH ABOVE: Police are looking for the public's help after more than $1 million worth of items was allegedly stolen from a south Edmonton spa. Police call this a unique case and believe more than one person may be responsible. Shallima Maharaj reports.


Edmonton detectives are investigating after industry-specific equipment with a value of $1 million was reported stolen from a local business.

Police responded to reports of a break and enter at Perfection Cosmetics – which specializes in aesthetics and laser skin care – on May 30.

A witness saw the glass was broken near the front entrance of the 91 Street and 23 Avenue business when they arrived for work and called police.

A number of larger items, including a TV and other electronics were gone, along with a skin analysis machine and various lasers.

“The total value of the stolen items has been estimated to retail for more than $1 million,” Det. Stuart Davidson, with the Edmonton Police Service, said.

“These types of stolen items are often sold online. Shoppers are asked to be vigilant and ensure they are not purchasing stolen property.”

Because of the size and weight of the items taken, police believe several people and a vehicle were involved.

Police would like to speak with anyone who was at the clinic in the days leading up to the break and enter.
