Kingston Police Detectives from the General Crime Unit are investigating a jewelry theft that took place at the Cataraqui Town Centre on Sunday, September 1st, just after 4:00 p.m.

The second suspect, who drove the getaway car, is described as south Asian, approximately 30 years of age, shorter in height than the first male, with a slim build and black wavy hair.
