Investigators with the Financial Crimes Unit of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division request the public’s assistance to identify suspects in relation to two recent incidents that occurred in Halifax.
On February 21 and 22 two men attended two separate cell phone providers in Halifax and using fake drivers licenses and social insurance numbers from Ontario and British Columbia fraudulently obtained numerous high priced cell phones.
We believe the men travel throughout the maritime provinces committing this type of fraud.
The first suspect is described as white man with medium-dark brown hair that is receding and cut short, a goatee, early-mid 20’s, approximately 6’ tall, with a slim build. He was wearing a black sweater and light brown cotton pants.
The second suspect is described as a black man, with neatly trimmed black curly hair, a goatee, brown eyes, early-mid 20’s, approximately 6’ tall, with a slim build. He was wearing a blue dress shirt, black dress pants and a diamond earring in his left ear.
Anyone with information about these incidents or the identity of the suspects is asked to call police at 902-490-5016.
