A suspect stole a laser level from a Home Depot in Markham last month and fled the scene despite efforts to arrest him by store security.
On Sept. 14, video surveillance shows a man in the store at 50 Red Maple Rd. at about 8:45 p.m., according to Crime Stoppers of York Region's crime of the week. Police said a suspect removed a Dewalt laser level from the shelf and put it in a black bag, then left the store without paying.
Security on site attempted to arrest him but the suspect fled the scene.
Police describe the suspect as a male, Persian, aged 30 to 35, with a medium build and dark hair. At the time, he was wearing a red Team Canada Hockey hat, black jacket, dark track pants, blue Adidas sneakers and had a black bag.
