Hamilton police have released a video of an alleged break and enter at a jewelry store in Westdale.
Police say the alleged incident happened overnight at Westdale Jewellers on Newton Avenue on Dec. 7 when a man attempted to gain entry by kicking out a window.
However, police say the suspect was scared off by staff, who were already at the business.
The suspect is described as a white man with a medium build who stands six feet tall.
According to police, he was wearing black shoes, light-coloured pants, a jacket with “BUD” on the back (possibly a Budweiser beer jacket) and a mask covering his face at the time of the alleged incident. Police say he was also wearing a backpack on the front of his body.
Investigators are asking the public to review the video and contact Det. Const. Ryan Komadowski at 905-546-8939 or Det. Sgt. Torrie at 905-546-2991 with any information that could identify the suspect or assist with this investigation.
