Dartmouth woman faces theft charge after quick-thinking observer records licence plate number

A Dartmouth​ woman is facing a theft charge​ after a quick-thinking observer​ recorded the​ license plate​ number of the car she left in.

Yesterday, just before 3 p.m., Halifax District RCMP received​ a​ report of​ a woman leaving​ a business located on the​ Forest Hills Pkwy​ in Cole Harbour carrying​ fragrances she had not paid for. The fragrances were valued at approximately $785.​ The woman was then seen getting into a vehicle and the licence plate number​ was recorded by the observer.

Halifax District RCMP, with assistance from Halifax Regional Police, located the suspect, a 47-year-old​ Dartmouth​ woman, and she was arrested without incident at​ a​ home in Dartmouth. She​ is facing a charge of Theft Under $5,000, was released and will appear in Dartmouth Provincial Court on April 3 at 10 a.m.

The RCMP wishes to thank the quick-thinking observer who recorded the license plate number as​ their actions directly contributed to locating and arresting the suspect. License plate​ numbers can be very useful​ to police​ and the RCMP asks residents to record this information if it is safe to do so​ should they​ see what they believe to be​ a crime in progress.

The investigation is ongoing.
