Abbotsford Police is seeking the public’s help in identifying the suspects who stole poppy donation boxes from local businesses earlier this week.

According to police, the first incident occurred 12:30 a.m. Sunday at a business located in the 32700 block of George Ferguson Way. The second incident took place on the morning of Remembrance Day, Wednesday, at 10:30 a.m. at another business on the 2000 block of Sumas Way.

Both suspects are described as male, Caucasian and in his 20s. The suspect in the first incident was wearing black pants, a white hoody, and a blue toque in the first incident while the suspect in the second incident was wearing a red and white jacket and a black toque.

It is unclear whether the same suspect is responsible for both thefts.

Anyone who has information about the thefts should contact the Abbotsford Police Department at 604-859-5225 or text message 222973. Alternatively, tips can also be made to Crime Stoppers’ anonymous hotline at 1-800-222-8477.

There have been a number of poppy donation box thefts across the South Coast, including a theft on November 3 in Coquitlam and two thefts on November 4 in North Vancouver’s Lonsdale area. Over the weekend, a 28-year-old man was arrested for the North Vancouver thefts.
