At 8:43 p.m. on December 4, a man entered a pizza shop on Hwy. 215. He asked for a package of cigarettes, then ordered food. While the worker was preparing the food, the man took several cartons of cigarettes from behind the counter, and a quantity of cash from the register. When he realized the worker saw him, the suspect ran from the store and left the area in a dark coloured car in the direction of Windsor. No one was hurt during the incident.
The suspect is described as white, clean-shaven, with a thin build, wearing a black coat, a black hat and heavy boots.
