Police responded to Atlantic Photo for a commercial burgler alarm at 6111 Pepperell Street in Halifax. Other calls were also placed from witness accounts of a Break and Enter in progress.
As Police arrived, the suspect fled. Members of the Patrol Division assisted with K-9 searched the area locating evidence, but were unable to locate the suspect so far.
An undetermined quantity of photo lenses were stolen. The only suspect description that could be obtained was a male wearing dark clothing and wearing blue gloves.
