||YVR Distraction Thieves
||September 4, 2014
On September 4, 2014, at approximately 20:00 hours, Richmond RCMP at the Vancouver International Airport responded to a theft of baggage complaint in the Domestic Terminal Building.
The complainant; a travelling jewellery salesman; was checking in for an Air Canada flight to Toronto when he was distracted by an unidentified suspect. While distracted, a second un-identified suspect stole a small carrying case belonging to the victim, containing approximately $300,000 worth of 14-karat gold and silver jewellery stamped with his company name "PAGM".
Prior to checking in for his flight the victim visited jewellery stores in Vancouver, Burnaby, Surrey, and Langley. Investigators believe he was targeted by organised distraction thieves. A review of Airport CCTV revealed the victim was followed by two suspect vehicles.
1: Gold coloured Honda Odyssey with partial plate of "64," or "741" or "742."
2: Dk. green or blue Honda CR-V.
