Cops post photos of suspects in Fairview jewelry heist


Montreal police have turned to the public for help in tracking down two suspects who brazenly robbed a jewelry counter at The Bay in the Fairview Shopping centre on Sunday.

The pair of suspects entered the department store at about 4:15 p.m. Sunday and headed straight to the jewelry counter. One suspect used a hammer to smash display cases – the sound of which sparked a panic when it was mistaken for gunfire – and the pair made off with approximately $25,000 worth of merchandise. They then fled via the centre’s eastern exit to a pedestrian walkway leading to an underpass allowing users to cross Highway 40.

The two suspects were dressed almost identically – black pants, royal blue sweaters, black shoes and black hoods, black hats and mirror lens sun glasses. The first suspect is white, 6-feet-one-inch tall and weighs 170 pounds. He wore a white glove on his right hand and carried the duo’s black loot bag. The second suspect is 5-feet-8-inches tall, weighs 135 pounds and wore white gloves on both hands.

Anyone with  information on the robbery or suspects is urged to call Info-Crime at 514-393-1133.
