Surveillance footage showed ‘shadowy figure’ commit crime at north-end convenience store April 17

The Petro-Canada gas station and Uplands Convenience Store at the corner of Rutherford Road and Uplands Drive lost a box of candy to a shady character last week.

According to a police press release, video surveillance footage from last Friday, April 17, showed a “shadowy figure” reach through a take-out window with a stick to snag a box of candy valued at about $40.

Investigators advised the store owner to move valuable items away from windows to help prevent thefts in the future.
