Police say the suspect entered an employee door of the restaurant and ventured into the employee locker room, where he rummaged through bags and purses, and stole a wallet.

Police are asking the public to identify this suspect.

Police say a short time later, the suspect utilized a stolen bank card and made a purchase at the Tim Hortons located on the corner of Derry Road and Bronte Street in Milton. The suspect attempted to use the stolen card elsewhere but was unsuccessful, police add.

At 8:41p.m. on the same evening, the same male suspect entered the Lowe’s store at 55 Ontario Street South in Milton. Once again, police say the man went to the employee-only area and rummaged through lockers, and allegedly stole a bottle of prescription medication.

He also attended the customer service area and attempted to open a Lowe’s credit card using a fraudulent Ontario driver’s licence, say police. The man then fled on foot to an awaiting, dark-coloured vehicle described as a newer-model four-door sedan.
