With eyewitness information and neighbouring cameras, police have confirmed that a male and female worked together to commit these crimes.

The male suspect is described as someone who is white, approximately 20-years-old, and 5’10”. Police say the male has a heavy build, and was wearing a dark sport-style jacket, jeans, and a dark-coloured baseball hat. The suspect was also carrying a small metal crowbar, and was wearing an orange buff (neckwear) covering his face.
