Police seek suspects in motor vehicle theft and credit card fraud

The Windsor Police Service is seeking the public’s assistance identifying two suspects wanted for a motor vehicle theft and fraud.

On October 12, 2023, officers were called to a gas station in the 3400 block of Walker Rd. for a report of a motor vehicle theft. Shortly after 6 a.m., an individual entered the gas station and left their car running in the parking lot with their wallet inside. Shortly thereafter, two suspects arrived at the location in a newer-model sedan. One suspect exited the sedan to check the door of the unattended vehicle. After finding it unlocked, the suspect left the premises in the stolen vehicle. The second suspect followed in the newer-model sedan.

About an hour later, the two suspects used the victim’s credit cards to make purchases at two locations in the 200-500 block of Tecumseh Rd. E.

The first suspect is described as a tanned, tall male with a medium build. At the time of the incident, he wore a black hoodie, dark blue jeans, and a black medical mask.

The second suspect is described as a white male of average height and build. At the time of the incident, he wore a white and grey Puma zip-up sweater, beige pants, black Puma baseball hat, and a white/blue medical mask.

The suspect vehicle is described as a newer-model 4-door Audi sedan, purple or dark blue in colour.

The stolen vehicle is described as a silver 2014 Honda Civic, with plate number CYES090 and a dent on the rear driver’s side.
