Distraction Theft

On May 8th, 2023, at 12:20pm, an elderly female victim was walking in a residential neighbourhood located near the intersection of Imperial Road South and Wellington Street West in the City of Guelph.

A black sports utility vehicle (SUV) driven by a male in his 50’s, with a female with shoulder length gray hair in the front passenger seat, pulled over to ask for directions to a pharmacy.
