“Your buddy then approached the cosmetic counter where he was surprised that the employee was still there. It appears the two of you were hoping to do a little shopping on your own while everyone evacuated for the alarm. Your actions, in addition to being criminal, caused inconvenience to customers and staff, as well as attendance of the Penticton Fire Department,” the news release states.

It is also alleged the pair took a cab on March 31 and did not pay the fare.

Information can be sent to the Crime Stoppers tips line at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit www.southokanagancrimestoppers.ca and submit a tip through their website with reference to file number 2019-8227.
